" Three Special Men"

It's a bit of a joke with one of my friends.
She once said: "I bet you like reading Obituaries!" and yes, she was right.
It's not the's the Lives I like to know about...complete stories in themselves.... and today there are three main Obits in the Times: the guy who introduced black/white stripes to pedestrian crossings, a Lt-Col who gained the Military Cross, and a chest specialist who tackled TB in the East End and helped homeless alcoholics.
Their stories are the stuff of the best of novels. All had brave and very long lives.
And wonderfully, all were 94, all three of them.
It was a privelege to read about them.

I must admit I read the obituaries for interest and they can be very interesting.
