This is the saddest picture in the world for me. This is the only picture my Dad ever had of his own mother. The mother who died a few days after giving birth to my Dad, her first and only son, in February 1923. I'm crying just typing these words.

The night before he died, my Mum spotted my Dad looking at this picture (it hung on the wall of their living room) and asked him if he thought of her often. Dad's reply was simply 'Every day'.
