Miss DA from the coroner’s office in Peakville informed me that the causes of the Old Man’s death were carcinomatosis and carcinoma of the lung.
I phoned Mrs PM to tell her that the Old Man had died. To my astonishment, she told me that her granddaughters (the daughters of her son) are aged 23 and 19. Her son, whom I have known since he was a little boy, turns 50 in 2011.
