Matriarch, 94, leaves nearly 300 grandkids

"Gregoria Martinez, 94, might seem like your typical grandma. She made quilts for her grandchildren, encouraged them to go to church, prayed for them and gave advice.

Except the Vernon, Texas, grandma didn't have just a handful of grandchildren when she died late last month.

She had nearly 300."

To continue reading this heart-warming story go here. I wouldn't recommend reading the comments afterward, they are not uplifting at all.

What a great story - the comments however are very disheatening...

I will add the caveat, that I don't recommend reading the comments. I guess we need to take into consideration that this is Western Washington state and the article was in a very liberal newspaper.
