Four years already ?!   Its been four years I've been doing my day centre work aswell, how time flies.  I started filling up when the ships horn blew three long blasts, it was that sign that she was going.  It was a Tuesday if I remember correctly as I went to the day centre the next day and said to one of the gents about her leaving. She had a million poppies dropped over her which I thought was a very nice tribute not only  for her and her service in the Falklands but to those who served their Queen and Country the ones who made it back and those who didn't.

I was on Red Eagle, which was doing a special cruise. We escorted QE2 down to the Solent and said our goodbyes between East Cowes and Ryde. As she disappeared into the distance, there was hardly a dry eye on the ferry, including mine.  :( :'(
 
I too was on RE that evening. I kidded myself the wind was making my eyes water but I knew that wasn't really the case
Start every day with a smile and get it over with
