Will You Still Love Me.....

"Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I'm sixty four", that's how the Beatles' song goes. Well she is indeed feeding him in this picture, but he's way past 64, actually 91 at the time of this picture. She is 84. They had been married for 70 years by that time, they got married when she was 14 and he 21. They are my uncle and aunt, my dad's oldest brother and his wife.

 

I uploaded this picture for a thread on "The World Through My Eyes" that talks about pictures that have special meaning for us. This pic holds a lot of meaning for me for not only the significance to me of who they are, but for the long lasting relationship they define. This was the last picture I took of them together, my uncle passed away the very next day. Today is my wife's and mine wedding anniversary, and for that reason too this is a very poignant topic.

 

But, in the end, why on earth would I put this on Flickr. 'Cuz I think this is a great photograph! :-)
