Auntie Glad is 99

At yesterday's meeting we had a salute to Auntie Glad
She was 99 years old
This is the Facebook entry from the village choir's visit with her
The old broad will reach her 100!






"Trelawnyd Male Voice Choir added 3 new photos.
10 hrs
Penblwydd Hapus iawn Anti Glad!...Gladys Jones is 99 yrs young today and choir members gathered at the Prestatyn Care Home this morning to pay tribute and share this Special occasion with her. In the presence of members of her family, Gladys was presented with a framed certificate in recognition of her wonderful support & service to the choir and also a personalised wooden frame with a 1973 photo of senior members that included her late husband Bob 'Railway' Jones. With Ceinwen at the keyboard, the choir sang Happy Birthday and a few other songs which she said 'made her day'. It was great to see her happy and smiling, she is bright, charming and wonderful. Her lifestyle and clean living is the reason she has reached this wonderful age, our warmest wishes for a super day!...Côr Meibion Trelawnyd."

  16. No red balloons, then? Well, I suppose 99 would have been rather a lot - and might have been lost on her anyways.
    Well done, Aunty G. Your century (and beyond) beckons.

  25. Happy Birthday to an amazing lady. Doesn't she look well. I'm so glad the people celebrated with her. She will have really appreciated the choir, music is one of the joys of many elderly people, I understand.

    You're in for a busy and stressful time yourself John. I hope you find music to sooth you through it.

  32. Wow! Auntie Glad looks fabulous in her red birthday dress. . . . .

    Love the certificate is in Welsh and English - people can click on it to enlarge and read clearly.

    How can you leave your wonderful village - and what will they do without you John?

  39. My mum is 95 but still pretty healthy for her age. I wouldn't be surprised if she reaches the century. But I somehow doubt I'll get anywhere near that milestone.
