Her last words: "I never lose my spirits!"
Sunday, October 18, 2009
The Duchess passed in her sleep on Tuesday night surrounded by her 11 domestics. Up until her last hours, laughter was heard coming from her sickroom, as she greeted all visitors with the merriest of stories and the bawdiest of jokes. She lived an extraordinary life and did everything she wanted to do. We will miss her deeply. Letters of condolence can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
