My Nan has passed away

98 years old. Just five short of the century, as Beckham might say. It's been coming for a few years but because they've been there your whole life, there's a thought in your head that it will always be so, even though you know it's impossible.

 

Bloody amazing woman, as most of that generation were. My other nan passed away 8 years ago.

 

Anyway, i was thinking how sad it will be when the last of her kind go. The men and women who got us through two world wars and who brought up our parents. You look at the world today and realise that bit by bit, authority and respect are being chipped away.

 

Did they really fight that hard so that kids today kill people who pass them in the street and ask them to quieten down, or hurl abuse at them on the train because the mobile phone is being used as a stereo ?

My sincere condolences to you and yours Mark.

 

Agree with your comments on the tenacity of the older generations, however bear in mind that this current generations' parents - some at least - try to continue the fine example set by our predecessors.

RIP mate, remember talking to my grandfather and having so many queations that I wanted to ask him about his life, but I was too young and he was too battle weary perhaps to answer having fought in 2 world wars, before he died. A life I know a bit about but so much he took with him that I'll never know.

 

RIP

It's a regret suffered by many only when it's too late to redress - with the advent of the home PC, it's no wonder genaeology has become one of the biggest businesses online.

Sorry to hear that Stuff, my condolences to you and the family.

 

Nearly a hundred years is a fantastic amount time on this earth at least, and I'm sure she leaves you and yours with a hell of a lot of happy memories.

 

RIP.
