Paul and Linda McCartney in 1973; Michael Putland/Getty ImagesYou might have missed it, but Paul McCartney took a moment Tuesday to remember his late wife, Linda, on the 20th anniversary of her passing.

McCartney posted a color photo of Linda on his Twitter and Instagram, one that appears to have been taken in the early 1970s. Linda’s wearing a sweater, with her face in profile, slightly upraised and presented against a sunny blue sky, her hair catching the light like a halo.

“Remembering Linda with love today,” McCartney writes. “Beautiful memories.”

Paul met Linda Eastman in May of 1967 in London, when she was a 25-year-old photographer. They were married March 12, 1969 and remained nearly inseparable until Linda’s death from cancer on April 17, 1998.

McCartney had a brief, tumultuous marriage to former model Heather Mills from 2002 to 2008. He married New York businesswoman Nancy Shevell in 2011, four years after they met.
