Paul McCartney and Yoko Ono have paid their tributes to Cynthia Lennon, who died yesterday (April 1st) in Spain at the age of 75.

John Lennon‘s first wife had been battling cancer. In a statement released to NME, McCartney has 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.”

Lennon’s second wife Yoko Ono has also left her condolences, writing: “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.”

There was a tribute too left by Ringo Starr on Twitter. “Peace and love to Julian Lennon. God bless Cynthia, love Ringo and Barbara xx,” he said.
