News of Titanic survivor Miss Millvina Dean
My wife and I visited Millvina and Bruno today (Tuesday 18th October) for morning coffee and we found her to be, mentally as bright as a button, but physically drained.
She is recovering from another recent fall where she hurt her right hand which is bandaged and strapped up hindering her writing etc. She was on the floor for over an hour before she was able to get help - she told us she passed the time reciting poems!
While we were there the Postman arrived with yet another large bundle of mainly unwanted mail and she bemoaned the fact that her name had ever appeared on the Internet as there is no way that she can keep up with it - we advised her to dump all the unsolicited mail that she receives.
She is now showing her years but still enjoys life and we had a lively conversation for a couple of hours.
She also reported the loss of her address book which she said has simply 'disappeared' - lets hope it turns up soon.
Millvina sends her regards and best wishes to all her friends and acquaintances.
