Remembering Aunt Gladys
On this date in our recent family history . . . the 18th day of September . . . in the year 2007 . . . Gladys Coreen Taylor nee Muston dies in Waco, McLennan County, Texas . . . she is the sixth of seven daughters born to Charlie & Emma Patience (Nettles) Muston (my great-grandparents) . . . and the last one surviving . . . Aunt Gladys is laid to rest beside her husband, John A. Taylor (1909-1990), in the Lexington City Cemetery in Lee County, Texas . . . one of the older sisters of my Aunt Gladys is Ima Lois Pounders nee Muston (1906-1999), who is my paternal grandma . . . in the late 1950s and early 1960s, our little family would drive down the road to Lexington (from Rockdale) on Sunday afternoons to visit with Grandma (Emma) Muston, who lived right across the street from Aunt Gladys and Uncle John . . . so the Sunday visits always included them, too . . . remembering . . .

I was on my way home from Aunt Gladys' funeral when I picked up Cisco in Rockdale and brought him back to Dallas to live with us . . . unbeknownst to me at that time, it was also just a few days after a litter of poodles was born near Dallas . . . one of them would soon join our family and be known as Riley . . . and the runt of that litter was Little Man (solid black and about half the size of Riley) . . . who now belongs to our friend, Matt . . .
