365 of Me: 361/5

unnamed (4)

I know I just posted this picture a few days ago, but I wanted to post it again today in honor of my dear Grandma. She passed away yesterday at 2:30pm quite suddenly. She was 93. She leaves behind 5 children, 14 grand children, 14 great grand children, and if my count is correct, 11 great great grand children.

I love you, Grandma, and I miss you already.


  1. Dear Shannon Lee Yarbrough:

    Thanks for replying on another thread. You take nice pictures and you have a nice family. 🙂 Think of the nice times you had with your grandma as she would want you to remember this & rather than mourn her death, know that she has gone to a nice place.

    Your grandma lived through 3 major wars the U.S. was involved in-WW2, Korean War and Vietnam War. I’m sure she has told you about this-both good times and bad times this nation had. & I’m sure she has told you about the time FDR signed Social Security. But her most favorite times I am sure has been spending with you, her kids, grandkids and great grandkids.

    Finally, if you don’t mind me asking-93 is a long time to live. Though I can only speak for myself, I wouldn’t want to live that long. But would you like to live as long as she did, longer than she did or lesser than she did? Hope you don’t mind me asking and again think of all the nice times you had with your grandma and rather than mourn her death, think of the fun times you had with her when she was alive. Happy New Year and hope you had a Merry Christmas.:)

    • Hi Abner- Thanks for the reply. No, believe it or not, my Grandma and I never discussed the war. We are small town folk, so it was always about family and our history rather than that of the world’s.

      I have answered your question many times this weekend about how long I would want to live and the answer is no, I hope I don’t live to see 93. I hope I don’t suffer, and I hope I don’t die alone.
