Unfortunately, that day was also Emily’s death day.  She was 74.

It wasn’t the best of birthdays.

It didn’t take long for Bjorn to ease his grief.

Unfortunately, Alexandra witnessed them kissing and was quite upset (even though Emily was dead).

Penny came out, wondering why her sister was crying and cried too.

Then Peter came out to see what all the crying was about and witnessed it for himself.

Bjorn felt like he’d found true love at last.  (Sadly, it wasn’t to last – Sally died not long after.)

Meanwhile, over in Bluewater village, Hereward got promoted to Mayor at the age of about 60.

He proposed to the much younger Eve Larsson who happened to live in the retirement home with her daughter.

It was the first proposal Eve had ever received and she accepted.

They married in the backyard of the home one mild evening.

“What? Can’t an old man find love?”

They ate wedding cake inside.

It was Hereward’s second marriage after living with Emily for a long time (Emily never married).  He figured his wife wouldn’t die before him this time.
