cool idea, thestrangequark! I like that pic of your brother with the long hair. A very handsome young man!
My grandaunt died 3 years ago. We were very close and though she was very old (103) it did come as quite a a surprise as she was in xcellent health. She even had all her teeth!
She was very educated, had friends that were writers, painters and musicians and she loved her garden and had tamed all the birds there.

I particularly love this pic of her as it captures her personality so well:
