Glad you found the F.A.Q. And glad you got to meet Millvina Dean--she is a hoot! I was on a tour in Cobh, Ireland with her a few years back and have met her on several other occasions. On the tour in Cobh, we journeyed out to Roches Point and the bus had to park a good distance away. I stayed back and walked the whole way with her as she is a bit unsteady. It was nice to have such a long uninterrupted visit with her and she is so funny and full of good stories. As I told her later, she is someone that would be a great person to know even if she had no connection to an historic event. Very open and honest with a keen insight into personalities and motives. I asked her if her brother's wife was still living at that point and she looked at me straight on and said "Yes but let's not talk about her. I don't like her and I'm more interesting anyway."

Dear God Almighty - I'm on a public computer and just clicked on that link. Let's just say I'm sitting here very red-faced with a load of people staring at me as if I were some filthy pervert! I think I'm going to run along now.
My DEARS! Please note that link was posted 15 months ago and WAS legitimate. Just tuned in here but I gather something dreadful has occured! Something not quite keeping with a churchlady's persona dare I say? No mea culpa for me-but SOMEWHERE I pray , lightening will strike!
Hi Shelley... How are you???
Like Michael said I dont think anybody is going to fault you. I remember that site and thought it was a beautiful tribute to Millvina Dean... now look what has happened!
Hopefully it was only Randy, Richard, Yourself and Me that had the unfortunate "viewing" of the site. It is terribly sad that what was a beautiful tribute to a beautiful woman is now displaying what it is.
In lighter talking, does anyone know how Miss Dean has been recently? I haven't heard her mentioned for a while on the board and hope she has recovered well from the fall she took a few months ago.
I loved rereading this thread to view Mr Gowan reliving his meetings with Miss Dean... thank you.
