    I normally wouldn't post this, but today we are holding a funeral for my Great Grand-Mother who passed away Sunday Morning at the age of 95. (Her 96th birthday would have been today.)

    She is survived by 10 children, 64 grand-children, 106 great-grand-children, and 33 great-great-grand-children.

    Preceded in death by her parents, 6 brothers, 3 sisters, 4 grandchildren, and 1 great-grand-child.

    Oh, and she has a younger sister at 89 who is still alive, and a older sister still alive at 101.

    Her legacy carried on 213 times. That is awesome.

    I'm going to give Gram a big ol' hug whenever I see her in the Great Beyond.

    Sorry to hear that, Chef.

    No matter how old someone is, it's still difficult to lose anyone who was part of your life.

    Sorry for your loss.

    Did you miss an opportunity to transplant some toes?

    Thanks for the thoughts.

    It was an amazing funeral. Essentially squeezed 275 people into a church with a capacity of nowhere near that many.

    Sounds like she was loved by many, and that's a true testament to the type of person she was. Sorry for your loss, Chef.
