Ancestral Piety [Dec. 4th, 2018|08:19 am]
Tony Grist
One of the men who used to work with my father rang up yesterday to find out whether my mother was still alive- and so whether it was appropriate to send her a Christmas card. I kept him talking for a while because it was pleasant to be chatting to someone who was my father's contemporary and thought of him as John (and not as Mr Grist). "John was a good boss," he said, which was a nice thing to be hearing.

Yes. I wasn't sure my mother would recognise his name- but she did.

How thoughtful to ask after your mother and what a nice call for you. I don't think many, if any, of my own parent's contemporaries are alive. I can't think of a one.
