Churchill on the Death of His Mother Lady Randolph

‘I wish you could have seen her as she lay at rest—after all the sunshine and storm of life was over. Very beautiful and splendid she looked. Since the morning with its pangs, thirty years had fallen from her brow. She recalled to me the countenance I had admired as a child when she was in her heyday and the old brilliant world of the eighties and nineties seemed to come back.’

– Winston on his beloved mother, Lady Randolph Churchill. 1 July 1921.
