My friend, Tony’s grandmother, affectionately known to all as ‘Nan’ has been an inspiration to all who know her. See my post: http://richardmaybury.co.uk/2010/08/life-lessons-from-a-109-year-old-woman/
It had to happen. Her body could no longer do what she willed it to do and she died last week.
109 is a great innings and she led a full life of triumph, tragedy, happiness and sadness. This is not a eulogy though – wrong time and wrong place.
One of the latest things she was looking forward to (there’s a life lesson right there!) was a trip to Belgium with Tony. In one of her last conversations with Tony she was making sure he would get the best exchange rate possible! Mixing ambition with attention to detail ….. at 109! …. RIP Nan
