  3. Impermanence told... Isn't it funny that we think of the cemetery as our final destination for our mortal remains - but it's not really all that permanent, is it?

  12. Hi Again Suz

    No we are no longer in touch, altough we went to the same fee paying school, her parents were well off and my mother's sister struggled to pay the fees, but she wanted to as it was my mother's request that I should have a good education and the money she left ran out!! Maeve, that was my friends name, became a Dr, Irish catholic and now lives in Ireland. I became a nurse, Welsh and welsh chapel, we couldn't be further apart. I wrote to her via Friends Reunited but no response but who knows one day?
