Despite the decades that have passed since his death, his widow, Yoko Ono, admitted in a Facebook post today that she still misses him.
Her message seemed to echo sentiments around the world that on the anniversary of Lennon's death, it's important to rally for the end of gun violence, which has persisted in great numbers for too long in this country.
"Every day, 91 Americans are killed with guns," Ono wrote, alongside a photo of bloodied glasses. The glasses look like they could have belonged to Lennon himself on the day of the shooting, though that is unconfirmed. "We are turning this beautiful country into a War Zone. Together, let’s bring back America, the green land of Peace. The death of a loved one is a hollowing experience. After 36 years, our son Sean and I still miss him."
Ono wasn't the only notable name to pay homage to Lennon today.
Lennon's son, Sean, shared a link to a YouTube video slideshow of pictures of the Lennon family against the song "The Dead Don't Speak, They Listen."
The estate of George Harrison, Lennon's bandmate in the Beatles, also shared a couple fond memories of their time together with pictures from their younger years.
