Grandmother Anna Belle Reel

My Great Grandma passed away this morning, 98 years old, and as feisty as ever. When I was little, she and I would exchange letters, until I was eventually able to take my first plane ride to go and see her, just a few months prior to Grand-dad passing. Our Visit in August.
Aunt Joyce, Grandma Shirley, and Grandmother

Grandmother and Grand-dad
She was a truly sweet lady, who loved her kids, and grand kids, and great-grand kids, and of course the sweet babies that were able to visit her from us. 5 generations in all.

Nat- Yes my mom does look like her, but you should see a pic of my other great grandma. Almost like looking in the mirror of each other. Still debating if I will drive down for the funeral. I would have to leave Sunday and be gone through Tuesday...have a lot to think about.

I love reading tribute to the woman up the line. Your children have been so blessed to be loved and known by so many woman.
