One of the people who commented on my blog was Kaz (Carol), a retired teacher from the Manchester area who had her own blog called Youngest Pensioner. She started blogging in 2005 when she turned 60, although I always felt that "youngest pensioner" described her outlook on life. Her blog profile was Patsy from Absolutely Fabulous.
Her postings became less frequent in 2010 and she reported that she had cancer. She remained upbeat and funny throughout this time, always responding to her many readers with humour and kindness.
Sadly, Kaz died in February.
She will be greatly missed.
