Famous music star just shared heartbreaking death news, prayers for the family…
June 14, 2017 was a day that will forever be tattooed on the beautiful Gloria Estefan’s heart. She just announced that her mother Gloria Fajardo, has died at 88 years old.
Gloria is a Cuban-American singer, songwriter, actress, and businesswoman. She has won 7 Grammy’s and many many other notable awards throughout her career and her mother has been by her side through it all.
The Grammy winner posted the announcement on her Instagram sharing that her mother was surrounded by her loved ones at the time of her death. She knew that’s exactly what Fajardo would have wanted.
“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.”
Gloria and her mother were inseparable, and anyone who knew about her knew that her mother was her greatest fan throughout her life and her career.
Fajardo had a personality that people instantly fell in love with. Although she was aging, she was still young at heart. She was spunky and spontaneous and anyone that met her loved her dearly.
She always had a smile to her face and brought joy to all who surrounded her…
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. 💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙
Fans knew that her mother wasn’t doing so well because Estefan kept them updated on her health through social media posts. She even had to canceled a show in Napa Valley onJuly 15 to be by her mom’s side.
This is such a heartbreaking time for Estefan and her entire family. Please continue to keep them in your prayers as they mourn the loss of this beloved angel.
She was so sweet and beautiful…
