Today was a service for a former co worker's husband. He was 76.
I hadn't seen Anna for a good 10 yrs but she hasn't aged at all.
When I first met her she had a Dutch accent but looked more Asian.
Turns out she & hubby were both Indonesian & grew up in Dutch Indonesia.
Anna has a fascinating past. A bomb went off not too far from her in the early 40s & she has always had hearing problems.
Her father was in a Japanese internment camp & escaped.
When he came home he carefully made his presence known to family. Shortly he was captured again & tortured but miraculously kept his wits about him.
I don't know why Im sharing this.

I didn't know him well at all but when she called with the news I had to be there. Just one of those things.
