End of an Era Coming Nearer [read as British]

Postby Petros » Sun Aug 07, 2016 7:12 am

Minutes ago I learned that a dear colleague of long standing died Wednesday - and Thursday was the funeral for a loved and valued [they are not necessarily the same] coworker.

HC was there to greet me when I landed in London in 1965 to do my PhD, very green behind the ears and in other recesses. We shared a terribly uncomfortable office for a while, and have shared much ever since. I was at her daughter's wedding, she came to celebrate our son's birth. She was the older sister I never had, and one of the people I was closest to. And she and Herself used to play Scrabble together.

She leaves her children - WAY grown long ago - and a heap of friends and colleagues [again not necessarily the same]. God be with all of us, and set her in a pleasant spot with a good garden, library and crafts room.

Condolences to you Petros. I learned yesterday morning of the loss of a coworker on Friday evening as well.

That is quite enough for one week.

Memento mori, and all that.

Condolences to you as well.

May every time you remember her be a joyous time.

She had her edgy moments - but never less than valued friend. Apparently she recorded for a history project, so the other day I got to hear her voice.
