God speed.

My daughter princess OTW's maternal great grandmother passed away last night surrounded by her family. The lady in question was born in Vietnam 92 years ago.She lived through French occupation,Japanese invasion,communist terrorism and the American bombings. When government pressure became too much the family fled across the sea in a small boat and lived in a tent camp for 2 years before finally coming to England.Here in England a country the left decry as racist the family flourished and survived becoming proudly English. Through all she remained cheerful and happy to the last.....without her my life would not be the life I enjoy today...she brought me my family,I hope she finds rest now.
