Gloria Estefan žali zbog gubitka svoje ‘drage’ mame

Gloria Estefan danas je u žalosti zbog gubitka majke Glorije Fajardo, koji je umro u utorak navečer nakon bolesti. Bila je 88 godina.

Estefan je redovito objavljivao Instagram o zdravlju svoje majke, podijelivši zahtjeve za molitve i razumijevanje; njezina kći Emily također je objavila fotografije svoje voljene abuele.

Iako je Fajardo bio bolestan, jasno je da Estefan nije shvatio da je kraj tako blizu: nedavno je otkazala koncert 15. srpnja zbog majčine bolesti.

U postu koji objavljuje Fajardoovu smrt (ovdje je na španjolskom), Estefan je zabilježio da se vrijeme podudara s vremenom kad je Fajardoova majka prošla 32 godine ranije.

Tonight at 8:19 pm we lost my beloved mother, the inimitable Gloria Fajardo. She went peacefully surrounded by her daughters, grandchildren, son-in-laws, niece, three loving caregivers, extended family and her most trusted friends, very especially, the two beautiful ladies in each side in this picture, Carmen Corpion & Clara Bris. They were an integral part of her posse not only throughout her life but to her last breath. I know it was exactly the way she would have wanted her departure from this earth to be, surrounded by love and the true representations of everyone that was special to her in life. I know she chose the very moment, 8:19, because her beloved mother had died on 8/19 thirty-two years ago and she wanted to make sure that we got the message that she was with our beloved grandmother, Abuela Consuelo and my loving father, Jose Manuel. I will miss her every moment of every day and I thank her for being the incredible mother, woman and role model that she was to so many people. Thank you for your prayers and messages, and the love and concern that filled our hearts and accompanied us throughout this most difficult time. Please know that at every moment, I let her know about the love and light that was being sent to her and she appreciated and absorbed every beautiful sentiment. Thank you for keeping us in your hearts and gently holding our hands. 💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙

Kao što je izvijestio Miami Herald, Fajardo je doveo Estefana preko Kube kad su pobjegli iz te države nakon Kubanske revolucije. Estefan je postao svjetski poznat glazbenik čija je priča najnovije izrečena u Broadway glazbenom “Na nogama”.

Emilyove poruke o njezinoj abuela zapravo su zarađivale stariju ženu kao navijačica kao “Rapuela” – jer bi im se pridružila!

Jasno je da su se talent i izvedba vodili u obitelji.

Zbogom, Gloria Fajardo.
