Subject: The woman who dropped dead on my mother


Ever tell ya about the woman who dropped dead on Letha C. Greene? Mom was sitting out on that white bench outside the Purser's office after dinner, resting and digesting. We had a charter on there. A nice old lady sat next to her andthey were chatting about this and that. Well, mom felt her little head on mom,s shoulder and thought it was sorta weird..looked over at her and she was DEAD! Long story short, they put her in one of those forward cabins on the bed and kept the door open for a sort of "wake"..people came in to view her, etc. That was also supposed to be "hat night" when the passengers made silly hats for prizes. Mose wen up to a first mate and said"What the hell is goin' on around here!! There's a stiff in parlor C! I thought this was supposed to be Hat Night??" Well, they combined activities. The ladies with the funny hats with carrots and lettuce hanging down them, etc. went to the FUNERAL! That was one hat night neither Mose NOR I will forget! = jane
