    Telegraph:

    Cynthia Lennon - obituary
    Wife of John Lennon whose 10-year relationship fell apart when he met Yoko Ono

    Wikipedia:

    She was once asked if Lennon had written any songs about their time together, and answered: "It was too sloppy when you were young to dedicate anything to anybody. Macho Northern men didn't do that in those days". In contrast, Lennon said he wrote the 1965 song "Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)" about an affair he was having, but rendered it in "gobbledegook" so that Cynthia would not know.

    75? Oh my, it makes me feel like a spring chicken.

    I still have my copy of her book Lennon With A Twist. It was a sad read and I've always resented the way that John (and Yoko) left Julian to fall by the wayside.

    RIP Cynthia.

    I also cannot understand why John treated Julian the way he did, and then went on to dote on Sean. That must have been very difficult for Julian. It's not Sean's fault, but still must have hurt deeply.

    That was a beautiful tribute to his mom. She was a gorgeous young woman. Sad.

    I, too, always felt badly for Julian having to see his father's public adoration for Sean.

    If I remember correctly, Paul wrote "Hey Jude" for Julian, who was having a very bad time dealing with John's abandonment of him and his mother. That always touched my cold black heart.
