Pauline Spencer, 1953-2010

So I got a phone call from my mother, telling me that my cousin Pauline had died, chiefly from spending most of the last forty years smoking too much. We think it happend about a week ago.

I didn't see her very often, and the last time was probably about fifteen years ago -- not least because she lived in Africa and most of the rest of us live in Europe.

Still, one less Spencer in the world.
