After lunch, I drove to Peakville.
Before leaving, I phoned Mrs CJ. She told me that Sarah Goldstein, her next-door neighbour, had died on Monday 22 November 2010 at the age of 85.
Mrs Goldstein had lived in her house for about the same length of time as the Old Man had lived in his house — perhaps a little longer (54 years?). Mrs CJ said that Mrs Goldstein had been a heavy smoker, and her husband had always been telling her off about it. Then when he died, a few years ago, she had stopped smoking.
