Could you contemplate what it might be like to lose two children?
Now contemplate three children dying.
Now, if your three children died within 8 weeks…..
It was the overwriting on R.I.P of the name Josephine Devereux which caused me to pause and read, but then I saw that six months before she died, her three children, Mary, Eddie & Frank all died within 8 weeks – aged for 4 to 6.
It is now on my mental To Do List to investigate as to TB or other disease outbreak in 1943 that might have claimed four lives so quickly.
In the meantime, it will remain on my brain as a story so so sad.
It may be 75 years ago but that does not reduce the tragedy.
