Let the memory of Kevin be with us forever

This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Kevin Lamb, 54, born on April 21, 1958 and passed away on December 22, 2012. We will remember him forever.

Kevin passed away on 22nd December 2012 from pneumonia, it was a sudden and unexpected death ! He was fine in the morning, he even went shopping in the moring, When he back came home he said he was tired and took a nap, i woke him at 6pm but he was still tired and could not stay awake, so i let him go back to sleep, i tried to wake him at 10.15 for super and he had passed away.. It was the saddest day of my life. We had been married 29 yrs. Almost all his friends called him by his nicknames ! Grandad or Gramps short fot Gumpa Gamps as he was such i kind and caring man who was grumpy and stubborn at times.  You were my rock Grandad i love and miss you so much. Until we meet again R.I.P

Your loving wife Kelly 

Please no bible quotes, Kevin was not a religious man.

"Happy birthday my beloved Kevin. today would of been your 59th birthday. I will be having a drink tonight to you. Could all who knew Kevin raise a glass to celebrate his birthday tonight.

I have some major health issues since you have been gone my love Which have lead to me having numerous hospital visits for tests, biopsy's and operations. Am still not sure if i am in the clear yet after the last of my surgeries on my neck . Plus i was informed Tuesday while attending the followup appointment for my hernia fix surgery, which i was told the lump projecting form my tummy that was causing me so much pain was not an hernia as the 1st thought after all. But while they were fixing that issue they saw another problem which means i now need to now go a see a bowel.specialist again.  

I love and miss you Kevin RIP

Love Kelly""

"It's that time of year again my beloved Kevin. My how much i miss you not being around. I still wake in the night and automatically look over to check that haven't stopped breathing which you often would with the sleep apnea you had. I can not bare to see the empty space on your side of bed. I find myself putting the folded up clean laundry and other things on your side so i do not have to see your side of the bed now empty. None of your family have bothered too make any kind of contact with since the day of your funeral and some did not even talk too me on that day either. Oh i tell a lie your mum rang me once and when i answered she said oh i have rung the wrong number and rang off, but like we often said your family only ever got in touch when they needed something doing. Other than that we never heard from them or saw anything of them did we. Many times we said we were our own little family you Danny and I and that is still proving to be true. Danny helps me get out,and about taking me too my mums, shopping & places like he always did for us in the end . when your heath and problems waking and driving set in in your final years. Rachel as stepped in and also runs me round taking me places when Danny is busy. It take some of the pressure off of Danny as he as family commitments and all the things that come with being  a father of a young growing son and a loving husband. I will change 1 of your photos here later today love and replace it with a photo of us that i edited together as i can only find 1 photo of us both in the same shot together and its not very good quality.  Rest in peace my love. Your beloved wife Kelly XXX"

"Jason he was a good man, a good man who unlike you never had a bad word for anyone,would do anything for anyone and do his best for everyone even if he didn't know them, he didn't need religion to be kind,caring and thoughtful to anyone, And if it needs to be in a religious context for you to grasp this fact well.. God loves everyone even those who have sinned,so you might just be lucky enough to scrape by when it's your time. .next time if you have nothing polite to put jog on. ..Kev your a star,you always were and always will be..miss you xx"

"Hi Jason. Even though it says on my husbands memorial page. Please no bible quotes, Kevin was not a religious man. You still chose to ram you bible bashing twaddle on to other people who do not believe in your myths and make believe pile of shit. .So please stop putting such crap and nonsense on my husband memorial page.I respect other peoples right to have religious beliefs that is their business not mine but they have no right to push it on to others who do not hold the same belief."

"I still feel sad and shocked at the quickness of his passing. We'd only really got back in contact after a few years where my life was busy and I regret not calling him. He wasn't Kev to me he was Grandad and he always had the wise words, the hug and the kind gestures. I'll remember him as a king amongst men. A brilliant friend in every way always there to come and pick me up and bring me to stay with him and Sis every time things were awful for me. They both kept me alive through the worst years of my life. All I can say is thank you for the short years we had."

"What can I say about Kevin.  I knew him for only a short time but  he was one of the most loyal friend I have had the honor to know.  He was a kind man with a generosity of spirit one finds all to rarely in this world.  I know I speak for Cindy as well as my self when I say we shall miss you Kevin and “may the best of this life be the worst of the new one you have moved onto” Blessed be our dear friend."

"Hi Kev, well I miss our long chats setting the world to rights over numerous cups of tea, you were a star always.. made sure I got home from Rios every week no matter what state I was in  .. and never grumbled much when I was sick down the side of the car trying to make the effort for it not to be in the car. ... ha we had some good night's out me n Kelly.  . And you often did the asda stop for Kelly a blt n whatever I wanted .. then the time you locked us in the car at asda. .. kelly banged on the door told everyone we had been kidnapped then proceeded to climb out taking her dress off at same time . .. your face was a picture when you saw her stood at  side of the car in just her underwear and boots . . I'm sure you despaired of us sometimes. .. but no matter what you were always there when I needed you. . Be it a chat or taking somewhere or just as a mate. . Miss you loads so do kids, hope your having a ball where ever you are ,you gave us some good memories. . You will always be a star xx"
