It was 116 years yesterday since you made your appearance into this world. You were very much on my mind during the day and night too and, although it is now 28 years since I said goodbye to you that January day in Royal Perth Hospital, you are still very much with me each and every day.
The other reason I had you so much in my thoughts yesterday was because it was the anniversary of the tragic sinking of the Titanic. I have always remembered you telling me you were in church that day (in England) and it was your 15th birthday. The Minister was given a message and he then announced to the congregation the sad news about the loss of the Titanic.
I can only imagine the effect that news had on you and the others in that church on that Sunday morning as they thought of all those lives lost at sea. It was something you never forget during your lifetime as I remember you speaking of it quite often. It had so saddened you at the time.
We are both keeping as well as can be expected at our age and the family are OK. Beth is enjoying life in Alaska and she has big plans ahead. You would adore our little great-granddaughter AJ who will be one year old next week. She is walking now and is a real trick. Immy attends school full time now and is in pre-primary and doing really well. She loves to sing and dance and has a great imagination. C & M are fortunate in having two really terrific daughters.
Did I tell you that Aimee is now engaged and intends to marry next year? Chris is a very nice fellow and I feel they will be happy which is wonderful. She deserves more happiness in her life. Caitlyn is in her last year at high school and learning quite a lot about the hospitality industry which she seems to enjoy. She is a real delight and it's always great to see her.
Love you still
