|Let the memory of Lee be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Lee Hopkins, 24, born on May 2, 1987 and passed away on February 7, 2012. We will remember him forever. Always in our hearts, always missed.
Thank you to Lee's family and friends for honouring this special life and please feel free to share any photos and stories that are special to you and Lee.
Charlie England has also set up a donation option where funds raised will be directly and solely sent to the Pneumonia Research Department of the British Lung Foundation. Pneumonia is not just a disease affecting the elderly. Both Lee and his mum Jill were taken from us way too early from this disease. Anyone can donate or fund raise whether it's a specific run or just by lighting a candle on his page. Please pass this on to family and friends so we can make a difference in Pneumonia research development. Also if we reach our target a tree will be planted in Lee's name.

"To our angel
I miss you SO much. Even after a year I think you're still going to be just around every corner and there to share more great times.
Don't think we'll ever come to terms with it but I just KNOW you're with us all the same.
"The years we've shared have been full of joy.
The memories we've made will go on and on.
I haven't stopped crying since you went away,
and I've asked God time and time why couldn't you stay.
You lit up my life, my hopes, and my dreams.
You've opened my eyes to see what it all means.
So now that you're gone how can I forget;
Because you were the greatest out of all I have met."
"Hi Lee, my god the world has made it a year with out its favourite son, friend and brother. there is not a day goes by that i wish i could come and visit you, this year that has gone by with out your funny and loved self here but we all have grown stronger with your feelings and memories around us, i miss and love you so much lee as my brother and as my angel to look up to,forever missed X"
"Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed, and very dear.""
"If tears could build
A stairway and
Memories were a lane
We would walk right
Up to heaven and
Bring you back again, we miss you lee with all our hearts x"
"So a year ago I learnt the lesson that not every day is promise, when your light went out of my life. I can't believe how time has flown, when it still feel's like yesterday to me. You will continue to live on in my life and to everyone who loved you, you are the hand print on my heart that will never be forgotten. I will miss you yesterday, today and tomorrow my friend."
"So we grace another table
And raise our glasses one more time
There's a face at the window
And i aint never, never saying goodbye...
One by one
Only the Good die young
They're only flyin' too close to the sun
Cryin' for nothing
Cryin' for no-one
No-one but you"
"Flee.... Miss you more and more every day. It's a shock I'll never come to terms with. You made such an impression in my life. Thanks you so much for the amazing memories you've left and I'm so proud to have been your friend and to watch you grow into a beautiful young man! I know you're stil there for our coffee dates catching up on the goss! Just wish I could give you a big squeeze!xxx"
"heya Lee, thank you for being there to help me with my job.

"I miss you so much Lee. I still cant grasp the fact that you are gone. I look at our pictures often and remeber all of the amazing times we had together and i am so sad to know that when i make my way back to London you will not be there :( you mean so much to me and i am always going to have a piece missing from my heart now that your gone. I miss you more and more every day xxxxxx always"
"I miss you so much Lee and although they say time is a healer I've yet to see it....it was wonderful to see your family on your birthday and I think that the combined strength of them and your family will eventually get us through this. Despite the sadness I am SO grateful that you were such a big part of our lives. Love always. X"
"Time flies and life changes fast. When I think back, I can hardly believe that we spent so much time together and shared so many joys and sorrows. You're my dearest friend and today I want to tell you that I cherish those times more than anything else in my life. Happy Birthday my Darling x"

"Hi lee, it wasn't a couple of days ago i woke up at about 3 am and i got up and went for a fag, it was strange because i was wide awake and didn't look sleepy but i looked into the sky and could only see one star and it was a clear sky with other stars and it shinned as if it was i light in front of me and i felt like i had company, was it you there because i believe it was lee xxx"

"Rest in Peace. Keep watching over your family and friends."
"Doll, I miss you every second of every day. I know our bond is strong enough to keep us connected until we meet again. My bestest friend and my ultimate soul mate! You have a new gang of people to show how funny, kind and caring you are and I'm jealous of the time they will have with you but will treasure every second I had. Keep popping in to see me! In my heart forever! Love you Doll! X"
"So sad to say goodbye to my lovely nephew Lee yesterday, but what a lovely service, and to meet so many lovely friends of Lee's has helped me through this very sad time. He's with his mum now, night night god bless xx"
"Chicken!! what can I say? I'll never understand why, but know how lucky I am when you said Yes to my proposal. Our love is forever and no one can take that away. You complete me baby and I know that I complete you. We have so many amazing memories to share for eternity. One day soon I will watch you dance again and take you to the most special place in the world! I love you baby boy xx"
"Lee....I will always remember your sweet smile, your kind soul...and your lovely imitation of my southern accent. Rest in peace....teach those angels to tapdance so I can join in when I get there....love...momma lane"
"Lee, you are dancing on the stars now.....every time we see them twinkle we will know you are dancing to your heart's content.
Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed, and very dear."
"Lee, i don't think you understand how much i miss you and how much of an amazing person has physically vanished of the face of the earth, but what i do no that is your with me every day and that there is never not going to be room in my heart for you. Lee you were my brother from heart i miss you like a brother and love you like a brother. forever and ever your are in my heart and soul xx"
"I didn't know Lee for very long at all, in fact we only met a handful of times since he met my dear friend Paul. Lee was always smiling, laughing and wide-eyed - very much a huge-hearted man. Clearly, Lee was very happy in life and very much full of Love. I shall remember how fun he was and am so very grateful to have met him."
"Lee Lee. I will always remember the good times.You were a great friend and no matter what would always be there for whoever mattered to you. Im privileged to have had you be a part of my life and you will always be in my heart. Keep smiling because it lights up all of our lives. I will never forget the times I shared with you and the Belsize family. See you soon xxx"
"Although I only met Lee for brief time when I was in the U.K., it didn't take long to realize what an amazing gentle soul he possessed. He was so generous and gracious to Cindy and I when we came to stay with Robyn. I know he has left a huge void in so many peoples lives. I'm sorry for the pain you have to endure, but just remember, it doesn't last forever, but your memory of Lee does."
"lee you was going to be our 3rd son and we were so looking forward to it,and we still are,you came into pauls heart and then into ours,we did not know you for long,but long enough to know what a warm caring honest man had come into pauls life and ours, we will miss you but NEVER forget you,and one day paul will be with you again,you were made for each other,sleep tight lee x sue tony"
"Lee was a beautiful, kind, gentle soul that I will remember forever. It is a terrible tragedy that someone so young with so much to look forward to is now gone from us. I feel very privileged to have known him and I will miss him terribly."
"Hearing this sad news reminds me just how precious life is and how we should never take for granted the times and experiences we share. Particularly reminding me of the amazing times and friends we met at London Studios. Keep in touch with old friends and new and remember they were brought to u as gifts to cherish and share life with. I hope everyone is safe and well....Brooke xx"
"Dear Lee, unfortunately I don't believe we spoke at college. Although I remember you always smiling, hardworking very talented. I hope you are in a happy place and can reunite with some family and friends.
Rest in peace Angel. Carry on dancing and touching others with your joy. It most certainly seems you did whilst you were here with those who love you dearly....x"
"My dearest lee, all I can say is thankyou for sharing you laughter and joy with me in every amazing day we spent together. I will carry those memories with me through this life and smile at every thought of you. A great loss to this world but a beautiful addition to heaven where you can rest now with your mum, can't wait to see you again, your kitten x"
"my beautiful brother, words cant explain how much i will miss you baby. i just still cant believe this has all happened. im still waiting to wake up from this horrible nightmare. your the most amazing brother anyone cud ask for. It gives me great comfort though knowing your with mum now and i cant wait till the day we all can be together again. i love you my angel xxxxxx"
"We only met twice and we had so many plans for the new group. you were the absolute pro and loved seeing you rock the moves
An absolute gent and we continue with you centre front xxxxxx"
"Lee - you were an amazing example as to how life should be lived: always smiling, always joking, always there for your friends, no matter what. The glass was always half full. You brought so much joy to those around you; you will be deeply missed. Some things that happen are cruel and unexplainable, but I will always be thankful for the times we shared. X"
"Gone is the face we loved so dear
Silent is the face we loved to hear.
Too far away for sight or speech,
But not too far for thought to reach,
Sweet to remember him once here,
Who, though absent, is just as dear."
"Your light will never really fade It gets brighter every day As you lead us down the path And you show us all the way. Those last few steps may be quite hard And difficult to bare But the path ends at Heaven's Gate And we will find you there So begin your journey today my friends Keep pushing through the pain He waits for us at Heaven's Gates And we will be together again - xxxx Love u"

"Taken far before his time Lee was a very special sparkling light in our lives. We will miss him terribly as we struggle everyday to believe and except that he is gone. It seems like just a moment ago he shimmered in our world. Our sadness is only soothed by our beautiful memories and for those we are thankful for we have so many. He was a true gem to be around and a best friend to many!"
"......I don’t think he realised quite how many hearts he touched and so he will stay live there, forever, in our hearts. He is all around us in certain places, colours, sounds, scents and of course all that sparkles."
