R.I.P Gran

Tuesday 12th March 2013

I knew when we left Britain to start our trip that it was unlikely that my Gran, who was 105, would still be alive when we returned at the end of the year, her health had been deteriorating over the months leading up to our leaving. 

I say  ‘unlikely’ because in December 2011 the consultants at New Cross Hospital gave her 2 weeks to live and advised we find her somewhere for TLC and end of life care.

She was a lovely lady, very independent with a dry sense of humour. When asked by a reporter from the Express and Star newspaper in Wolverhampton what her secret for living to such a great age was she replied………. “I just keep on breathing”.
