Unusual day today. Heard first thing this morning that a distant aunt had died. Then later, while thinking about her, realised that she was the last person to have survived from the generation before me in my family. So now, the only relatives I have who are older than me are cousins - members of my own generation. And two of my cousins have died in the last few years. I can just picture the scene at her funeral next week. All of us looking at each other and wondering "Who's next?" Quite a sobering thought.
