Unveiling photograph brought tears to my eyes

What a wonderful photograph Alastair Watson took at the unveiling of the lovely bronze bust of the late Bill McLaren at Hawick.

They say every picture tells a story – and this one really did. I had tears in my eyes when I saw it.

The look on the face of Bette McLaren, the love in her eyes as she looked up at the bust of her husband said it all.

When you have loved and respected someone, and then they vanish from your life it is very hard to take.

People say life goes on. Yes, it does, but the wonderful memories never fade – they are yours to keep for a lifetime.
