She Loved His Eyes, and He Only Had Eyes for Her
June 16, 2016. Today would have been my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary, but dad died in 2007. He was 10 years older than my mum, they met because dad commuted into London on the same train as my grandfather. However, my dad was already married by that point and had three children.
Apparently, mum took note of him though and liked his eyes. She went to work and travel for 18 months in Canada in 1963-1964. At some point during that time, my dad’s first wife, pregnant with their fourth child, announced she was leaving him for his best friend.
My grandmother relayed all of this information to my mum in a letter. My mum wrote back, “please keep him on ice for when I get back!” And the rest is history. ~shared by @keithsoldslides
