My sister rang me last night to let me know that our Auntie Nell had passed away.
It was very sad news...but not entirely unexpected....she was 101.
But with her passing any connection to my Dad's family passes too.
Sure there are cousins...lots and lots of cousins....but most of them I wouldn't recognise if I ran into them in the street....which is also sad.
It's the closing chapter to a family story...the end of an era...rest in peace Auntie Nell.
