Aye...the unsinkable ship that met with the biggest rum on the rocks...

She was 97 and died in her sleep.


well it is the best way to go if you're goin'...I remember the story about my grandfather...every day he'd fall asleep in his chair right after supper, and one day he just didn't wake up...

that's how I'd like to go. ;)

The whole "unsinkable" thing only kicked off after it sank. Before it sank they never claimed it would never sink.

Kinda like the Victorians made up the stuff about Medieval people believed the world was flat.

My great granddad slipped away quietly in his sleep, unlike the passengers on the bus he was driving.
