This is so strange! Out of nowhere today I was trying to figure out the youngest someone could be today to have been on the Titanic. And now this... huh.

Just one. Audrey (Pearl) Lawson-Johnston. I don't remember exactly how old she is, but she was an infant at the time, so she must be about 95 now.

RIP.

It's so weird. Like Salome said...
Makes me think about Second (well, and First) World War too, and what it will be like when there is no one left that lived in that time...
