Memories of Lee

"12th December 2010 was the day that changed our lives forever. Lee was taken from us with out warning, suddenly our world collapsed around us. We have, however, taken great strength from the fantastic memories that can never be taken away. We'd love you to share memories of Lee that you have with visitors to our site - please enter them here. A smile costs nothing, but the memory of it lasts forever............"
