About this title


Most of us are not old enough to remember the sinking of the Titanic, since most of us were not even born, but almost everyone has a vivid, mental picture of the last minutes in the life of the huge, luxurious liner that was supposed to be unsinkable. We can see the great ship, ablaze with lights and tilting severely by the bow as the lifeboats were slowly moving away. We can only imagine what it must have been like to sit in one of those small boats and look back, or stand on the slanting deck when the realization that the unsinkable ship was going down, must have struck even the most faithful. The "women and children" mandate, though it was not followed to the letter, is an integral part of the legend, and the cause of more than one childhood nightmare, in which husbands and fathers were forever lost beneath the icy black water. Since it sank on April 14, 1912, the Titanic has been the subject of an endless stress of books, pamphlets, magazine articles, films, and even in the 1930s a country song was written by Roy Acuff, "What a Shame, When That Gre-e-eat Ship Went Down." It has been 90 years since the sinking of the Titanic, but the story, as told by Anna Thomas, is as compelling and popular as any ever written.

From the Author:

Born on September 11, 1928, to George and Rose Thomas in Flint, Michigan, I can honestly say I have lived a long and happy life thus far. If I were to live my life over again I wouldn't change a thing. Every phase of my life has been happy and interesting. After graduating High School, I attended Business College and graduated one year later in 1948. To avoid the peace-time draft, I joined the Marine Corps and served faithfully for four years.

After being discharged in 1952, I hired in at Fisher Body Division of the General Motors Corporation. Seven years later, I met and married my lovely wife, Phyllis. We adopted four children, two boys and two girls, plus my grandmother who lived with us, too. She lived with us for fourteen years before passing away in 1976 at the age of ninety-one. Those years were memorable as she told us her story on many occasions of how she survived the Titanic. Later, as time rolled by, our children blessed us with seven grandchildren, of which two grand-daughters reside in Arizona and one grand-daughter, along with four grandsons, living in Michigan.

I retired from General Motors in 1978 and moved to Arizona in 1981. Lately we have been living six months in Arizona and six months in Michigan.

It was the year 2001 when I decided to write a story about my grandmother in her honor.
