Silver Lady

This is Eileen, a very special lady. Yesterday she was 90 (sshhh), she has three children, six grandchildren and three great-grandchildren (well almost, number 3 arrives in July).

She was married for 58 years, to the same man who she met during the war and waited for even after receiving telegrams saying he was 'missing in action' - he was in fact taken prisoner of war. He too was a very special person named Samuel - they were devoted to each other until he died in 2000. She misses him every day.

Raise your glass to Eileen, a silver lady.
