Friday is the fourth anniversary of my father's abrupt passing from a heart attack. Several years before he died, he and my mom traveled on the QE2. They had a great time on their trip for a variety of historical and sentimental reasons. I was sad to read this article on the QE2's last voyage. It is traveling to Dubai where it will be partially scrapped and converted into a land locked "hotel, retail and entertainment destination." An inglorious end to an illustrious career. It is ironic that the news of its scrapping broke so close to the date of my father's death. I am sure he and my mom would have been saddened the QE2's fate.
