However, Macca still misses Linda, who died of cancer in 1998. McCartney said that he tries to think about the couple's happy memories to overcome the pain. "I don't wake up every day with a hole in my heart, but there's a tinge of sadness. I mean, how do you cope with losing those close to you? I've lost both my parents, lost George, lost John, lost Linda," the Daily Express quoted Macca, as saying.
"All I tend to do is remember the great stuff and that helps," he added.
