Millvina Dean

very sad to hear of the death of Millvina Dean - she was literallythe last surviving person from onboard the Titanic. She was only a baby on the voyage so can't have any memories of the event, but now the ship becomes a bit more more distant. Sad too that she had to sell her artifacts to pay for her nursing home fees.
So much about the Titanic is fascinating and tragic. A scriptwriter couldn't have written a more complete narrative (only Pompeii rivals its drama), and hubris has seldom been better defined.
