My dears, we all have to comfort each other over the tremendous sense of loss at the end of the beloved Downton Abbey. Six year, as a adult, can be a lifetime. When it began, my sons were in college, my daughter was a mere 13 years old. Is it just me, or do passages take on more meaning as we age? We fell in love with this family, as we were privy to countless triumphs and tribulations, romances, deaths, births, both up and down the symbolic stairs. Witnessing the end of a world and a way of life, the ravages of war and the inevitable advance of the modern world gave us a fascinating understanding of the times.
