This happy family shot was taken on the 11th September, 1943 but the bridesmaid just to the right of the bride, her sister, Lilian Bowen was just 23 in this picture.
Today, she would have celebrated her 95th birthday. A stroke marred her later years in life and whilst I only personally met her once, she struck me as a very kind and caring and funny lady. She reminded me very much of my own mum. She was down-to-earth and would help anyone. So let’s raise a glass to Lil today.
Happy Birthday, Auntie Lil, may your day be filled with love, laughter and happiness as all your days were to those who knew you when you were alive.
