Both Paul McCartney and Yoko Ono have posted their thoughts on Cynthia Lennon, following her death at age 75 today.

Sir Paul said, “the news of Cynthia’s passing is very sad. She was a lovely lady who I’ve known since our early days together in Liverpool. She was a good mother to Julian and will be missed by us all, but I will always have great memories of our times together.”

In a statement, Yoko Ono wrote, “I’m very saddened by Cynthia’s death. She was a great person and a wonderful mother to Julian.
She had such a strong zest for life and I felt proud how we two women stood firm in the Beatles family. Please join me in sending love and support to Julian at this very sad time”.

Ringo Starr tweeted:

Cynthia Lennon was the first wife of John Lennon. The couple married on 23 August 1962. George Harrison and Paul McCartney attended the service. Beatles manage Brian Epstein was the Best Man.
