Ailz spends most mornings at her mother's. They watch Homes Under the Hammer together. Dot wants a picture of Eric to hang on the wall so she'll have something to focus on when she finds herself talking to him. She's been sorting through albums and boxes but there's not much to choose from- just holiday snaps and the like, hardly anything you could call a portrait.|
They were together over 60 years. She was just 15 when they first met.
I can't even imagine that kind of loss.
They were one of those couples who are joined at the hip.
a picture sounds like a good answer'.
i'm wanting to make print outsof the brither and sisterin law
and put their faces in a stick.
then when we have family pictures
we can include them and sennd the pictures to them in florida,
Inconceivable. The Dreamer and I have been together for only nineteen years. To be left alone after sixty?
Ailz and I have done 21 years
Congratulations. Anything more than five or so, these days, seems little short of miraculous.
my folks have been together for 62 years.
Would anyone else have pictures of Eric? Another family member, I mean?
I think I may have- in my capacious archives.
Manolo and I have been together close to 40 years. I can't imagine life without him and to think of that kind of loss is impossible to fathom. I hope Ailz and her mum find a suitable photo. I remember it helped my mother in law to cope when she had an enlargement made of a picture of Manolo's dad after he passed away.
60 years is more than many people's lifetimes.
It comes to mind that Picasso's widow Jacqueline had a picture of him above the staircase in their house and used to greet him as "Don Pablo" as she went up and down.
