Sorry I didn’t make it on the day Tom....it would have been our 61st Anniversary 30th March, but I was thinking about you and listening to some of our favourite music....I’ll Be Seeing You......

I can’t believe 6 years have gone by Dad, I would give anything for you to be here with us all right now. There are no words just that I love and miss you everyday. Sleep tight dad. Number 3, one of the richest kids in the world xxxx

Why can I never find the words to write, Dad when you mean so much? It absolutely baffles me when the words spill out at other times. I think it's because it makes me too sad to remember what we have lost. A father is such an important man in a girl's life. He is the man all others are judged by. I know you weren't perfect but you were my dad and you put your family first and protected us all. You showed us how to be tender and kind-hearted and that it was perfectly natural to cry when you were happy and cry when you were sad. It's good to be able to remember all the happy times now instead of always grieving for what can never be again. Night, Dad. Love you xxxx

Well Dad, what a day to be proud of. Your chest would be bursting out of your shirt! I can see your smile, the tears in your eyes, the grip of your lovely firm hands as you hugged us and held us close. Never a minute goes by that I don't think of you and especially what a wonderful gift you and mum have given us. I hope and pray that I am passing the love, kindness and humanity you both have on to my children. Mum is having to get accustomed to do the bragging for you and she's doing a grand job. You gave us so much, you and mum together. We are truly the richest kids in town!

Tomorrow 1st June 2017 Andrew and Taryn are attending a Royal Garden Party at Buckingham Palace, that is 6 years to the day 1st June 2011 when I awoke at approx. 3 am and something terrible happened, I can only describe it as a violent fit of some sorts and both of your hips were broken, you soldered on until 5th February 2012 so we had more time with you. The reason for this message is now we have a happy reason to remember the 1st of June. "Till". "Yours"

Well Tom the 30th March 2017 has come and gone...it would have been our 60th Wedding Anniversary on that day....we were all thinking about you ...... also 30th March 2012 was the day we celebrated Taryn QC taking Silk....You missed being there in person by a matter of weeks but you knew about it and we felt you all around us that day...you were and still are a powerful influence in my life....whilst I am writing this I am listening to Ernesto Cortazar and his wonderful music that we both loved and it brings you close....

You would have been so proud of us all on Saturday dad. We gave mum a fabulous party but it wasn't the same without you. I know you are watching over us all and enjoying it anyway but it's not the same as seeing see you puff your chest out with pride at what you and mum have built over the years. She's a real star isn't she but then you knew that when you first saw her and said you would marry her - and you did! All the grandkids and great grandkids did you proud too. They are kind, caring and loving and I just know they are going to go out there and make the world a happier, kinder place. Miss you Dad xxx

They have done us proud.....think about you lots and getting plenty of messages from you....but I am not moving..I am quite happy where I am.

Tommy Lee, you left us on 5th February 2012. Four long years have passed and I still think I'll hear you whistle me down the Avenue like you used to do or that you have just popped out for a pint. That just show's how strong your presence is to us. You were always a force to be reckoned with and you still are. "Many people enter our lives for just a little while. Others pause and plant flowers in our hearts that continue to bloom forever." You would have been celebrating your 80th Birthday this year on the 28th February. We will lift a glass of Southern Comfort and Dry to you. I hope wherever you are they have Southern Comfort behind the bar but knowing you, you'll probably be running the establishment "Spirits Are Us" . I'll Be Seeing You....."Till"...."Yours"......

Hello Tom, well here we are at some of your favourite places in DisneyWorld. We came for the wedding of Roxanne and Steven. We had to be dressed in Disney Costumes for her. I can't begin to imagine what you would have dressed in, with you being so shy and retiring. We are staying on The Boardwalk which you so admired when you were here. You would have loved it, but then again you have probably been here dividing your time between Bournemouth and Disney. Love you lots "Till" "Yours"

Tommy was a great guy...kind and supportive. I came of age through the "Sands" club...it was like a family...these places do not exist anymore - that is what is wrong with the world. Thanks Tommy - and not forgetting Joan and all the others that made a great team - unique!
Posted by Joan Lee on 28th February 2015
It would have been your 79th birthday Birthday today Tom. Think about you always and love you forever. Hope you have lots of love around you wherever you are, you have left me surrounded by love here. Thankyou. "Till", "Yours".

Another Christmas Tom without you. Hope you are watching over us and I know we are all thinking about you. Although you took your eye off the ball when I broke my knee cap, I thought you would have been there to catch me! I'm being well looked after though and feel lucky. "Till". "Yours".
Posted by Joan Lee on 15th November 2014
Tom on the 11th October 2014 I fell and broke my knee in 4 places. I have been bed bound and plastered since. I've thought of you often with 2 broken hips and all the many health problems you had, the girls and I didn't regret a minute of the time we spent caring for you, just that we couldn't make you well again. I know if you had been here now I would have been spoiled rotten by you and nothing would have been too much trouble for you. I feel you close and that I am healing and getting stronger because of your prescience Tom. "Till". "Yours".
Posted by Joan Lee on 27th July 2014
Just sat here listening to the beautiful music of Ernesto, which we both loved, and thinking of you. Life is Sweet Tom but I miss you.

Well Tom here we are on the first day of the New Year 2014 and I have a good feeling that things are going well for us all, it's been a long trek emotionally for the girls but we are still here and ready to take on anything and everything, just the same as you and I did, we got knocked down many times but we always got back up and pulled together. It was always worth it in the end when you look around at our great family. "Till". "Yours"
