We've been away for a couple of weeks, one of the first new threads I saw was titled something like "I have lost John Smith, my great grandfather"

I had such difficulty not to reply .........

"how very careless of you"!

:-D :-D :-D

How many of you have been tempted that way????

Me :-)

Along with the answer " He died" to the query " What happened to John Smith born 1790?"

Resisting temptation all the time ;-)

I forgotten the "he died" response!
