Long life brandy

Britain's oldest person died this week at the age of 113. Born on 24th May 1892 in Southern India, Lucy d'Abreu passed away at a nursing home in Sterling, Scotland on Wednesday.
The great great grandmother lived through the reigns of five British monarchs, two world wars and the turn of two centuries. She attributed her long life to her ''customary sundowner of brandy and dry ginger ale.''

Wow to have seen so much history and to be a part of it. My sincere sympathies go out to her family. I hope to someday have a similar rememberance written about me in the extremely far off future.
