Joyce Triplett, Oak Grange, Melbourne, Australia. A short 2 minute vignette of my Mum – Joy Triplett when she lived at Oak Grange Retirement Village in East Brighton, Melbourne. I made the video in November 2012, I forgot about it and it was a couple of years before I found it again and decided to edited it. I’m so glad I did, its a great memory.

Mum passed away on January 6 2016, at 91 years. Her life was long and fulfilling and she passed away quietly surrounded by her family. We buried her at the Templestowe Cemetery with my dad Len Triplett who she outlived by 38 years. Joy never owned a mobile phone and never left a digital footprint apart from this short video, the last two seconds of which are both poignant and delightful.
