Letter from Astrid to Millie, May 1962
Astrid was too ill to travel to Liverpool for Stuart's funeral. The Beatles had just started a run at the Star Club in Hamburg and were also unable to attend.
In one of her first letters to Millie after Stuart's death Astrid gives an insight into how John Lennon was coping with the loss of his friend.
"John. Oh mum he is in a terrible mood now, he just can't believe that darling Stuart never comes back. He just crying his eyes out John is marvellous to me, he says that he know Stuart so much and he love him so much that he can understand me."
