Love at First Sight, Simply Pictured in an Old Family Photograph
Just found this photo of my Mum from 1967 next to my Dad’s bed. She died 7 years ago.
On the back he wrote,”Patricia, making my car so attractive.” This photograph would have been taken shortly after they first met. My father was very proud of his Triumph Spitfire sports car, which he probably thought impressed my Mum (years later, she confessed that she thought he was a bit “flashy” when she met him first). He claims it was love at first sight and he still has the diary entry he wrote when he met her, writing that he had just met the woman he was going to marry.
They were married for 39 years until my Mum passed away suddenly at the young age of 63.
Dad was by her side and is still head over heels in love with the girl in the picture. ~shared by @lostandfoundimages
