|Let the memory of Gladys be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Gladys Mitchell, 72, born on April 13, 1926 and passed away on March 7, 1999. We will remember her forever.
""I am looking up today and I trust you are looking down.
Because today is your birthday and I am insisting on smiles and not a single frown. I know this is what you would ask for
because you always thought of other folk. So look at your smiley family laughing and having a joke
We always puzzled what to buy you when this
day came each year. You would always say “nothing - as long as you
visit I know you care”. So we would do the usual, buying you gifts that
would be useful one day. and you would express your delight as you put them quietly away. I like to think you are looking down on us in your
caring way. Especially today which is very special because (mother)
today is your 91st birthday
So (mum) I hope the angels are singing and you are
celebrating big style. But take a moment from your celestial celebrations to spend with us looking down for awhile.
Love you always and forever your daughter"
"Once upon a time an angel held my hand,
She wiped away my tears and helped me understand.
Our time on earth is brief, there's lessons to be learned,
Each precious day God gives us another page is turned.
Every chapter full of memories, times of joy and tears,
Triumphs and defeats, through every passing year.
She loved us unconditionally, always by our side,
When no one else would listen, in her we could confide.
With gentle words of wisdom she led us on our way,
Down the paths of righteousness if ever we did stray.
She saw the light in everyone and gave with no regrets,
Always from her heart let's not forget.
Angels come in many forms, for me it is my mother,
With love I cannot say in words there'll never be another.
Every day I turn the page in my heart will ever remain,
Everything she taught me as I stroll down memory lane.
Thank you God for giving me the most priceless of all treasures,
Help my Lord to keep alive her memory here forever.
I pray that I can some day be everything she hoped I would,
That's she smiling down from heaven knowing she did good.
As we gather here today there's no ending to her story,
Another chapter has begun full of grace and glory.
God's called her to his heavenly home, part of his great plan,
Although it may be hard, we all must understand.
Faith is what is hoped for, things we cannot see,
Heaven is promised to all of us if only we believe."
"Missing Granny and her fried cabbage."
"Granny's room was where the action was. You had to push your way through just to get a spot on the bed or my favorite, the recliner by her Brown clothes thingy...I remember piling up in hallways just to be a part of the conversation or laying on the floor at the end of the bed (even before the carpet) lol just to be around the love. Miss her dearly.."
"On the anniversary of the day you went away:
Today's the anniversary of the day that I lost you. And a time it felt as though my life had ended too. But you loss taught me many things and now I face each day with hope and happy memories. To help me on the way. And though, I'm full of sadness, that you are no longer here your influence will still guide me and I still fell you near. What we shared will never die, it lives within my heart. Bring strength and comfort while we are apart. Love you Mama"
"Mama, I just can not believe that it has been 17 years that you have been gone, I seem that it was only yesterday that you slipped away from us.
If I had the chance to meet you for one last time I would just ask you to hug me as tightly as you can, rest my head on your shoulders… and cry till my tears run dry. I miss you mom. Love you always,"
"Thanksgiving is here once again and I miss your smiling face, our talks while you are preparing Thanksgiving dinner for the family (when you able to do so).O how I miss though days MOM. I am preparing dinner with Tony help for the kids and anyone who would like to join us. Happy Thanksgiving Mom (R.I.P Gladys J. Mitchell). Love always your daughter Gale"
"I truly miss my grandmother! There are times when I want to hear her voice or see her face with that pretty smile... My Granny was the best and allways will be! I will never forget you... I wish that my children could have experienced you and the life that my sisters and cousins had with you in it... Time stops for none of us but my memories will last a lifetime..
I love you Granny!!!!! :-)
Your grandson "Stevo"!"
"Happy Mother's Day MAMA"
"I miss Granny and often wish my children had the opportunity to be told "don't wash your hands in the ice". She was a trip and I loved her very much. Don't get me started on her cabbage...the best I ever tasted!"
"Happy Birthday MAMA. Gone to soon but never forgotten.
Love you always ( R.I.P MAMA)"
"Mama loved to shop at Hecht's,. JC Penny's and Macy.When she got tried of walking around in the store she sit in the chair and tell you what she wanted. I would get the item and she would say not that one the other one. And mostly she loved her cologne. Do any of you how she used MUM?"
"I always feel the need to tell what I am cooking for dinner on Sundays as I was asked that question just about every Sunday by my Granny. She never accepted my answer of hotdogs and beans (smile)."
"Thanks for being there for me. I will remember the first time you took me to the hair dresser and I got my first perm and hairdo. You listened to me when i needed to talk. You also gave me an allowance after helping you out around the house. You will always be in my heart. May your soul rest in peace until we meet again."
A million times I've needed you. A million times I've cried, If love alone could have saved you. You never would have died. In life I loved you dearly, In death I love you still. In my heart you hold a place, No one could fill. It broke my heart to lose you, but you did not go alone. Part of me went with you, The day GOD took you home.
R.I.P Gladys Mitchell (my Mitch Miller)
Love you always mama
