Lee was a fun loving family man who was at his happiest when at home or soaking up the sun on a roof terrace. An avid Sheffield United fan. He was a postman and was known as John by work colleagues. He was my strength, my love and taken far too early from me. He was an exceptional father to Kathleen. He was the fun parent, always ready to act the clown to bring a smile or laughter. He leaves myself Becky his wife, Kathleen his daughter, parents Jack and Jean, sister Keely and nieces Beth and Victoria. Not forgetting our two dogs who will miss their football play pal. The care and medical support Lee received from St Lukes both from the palliative care team and as an inpatient in the last week was first class. They allowed him to keep his dignity and gave him the utmost respect. Their support to our family was outstanding and we will be eternally grateful of all their help. We wish that instead of flowers that you donate whatever you can to this marvellous Sheffield hospice.

Prayers and thoughts are with you at this sad time

    Thoughts

    For you my darling. Missing you more than words can say. Love you xx 'Twas the night before Christmas, when all thro' the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse; The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there; The children were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of sugar plums danced in their heads And Mama in her 'kerchief, and I in my cap, Had just settled our brains for a long winter's nap?—? When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter. Away to the window I flew like a flash, Tore open the shutters, and threw up the sash. The moon on the breast of the new fallen snow, Gave the luster of mid-day to objects below; When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer, With a little old driver, so lively and quick, I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick. More rapid than eagles his coursers they came, And he whistled, and shouted, and call'd them by name: "Now! Dasher, now! Dancer, now! Prancer and Vixen, "On! Comet, on! Cupid, on! Donder and Blitzen; "To the top of the porch! To the top of the wall! "Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!" As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly, When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky; So up to the house-top the coursers they flew, With the sleigh full of toys?—?and St. Nicholas too: And then in a twinkling, I heard on the roof The prancing and pawing of each little hoof. As I drew in my head, and was turning around, Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound: He was dress'd all in fur, from his head to his foot, And his clothes were all tarnish'd with ashes and soot; A bundle of toys was flung on his back, And he look'd like a peddler just opening his pack: His eyes?—?how they twinkled! His dimples: how merry, His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry; His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow, And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow; The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth, And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath. He had a broad face, and a little round belly That shook when he laugh'd, like a bowl full of jelly: He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf, And I laugh'd when I saw him in spite of myself; A wink of his eye and a twist of his head Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread. He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, And fill'd all the stockings; then turn'd with a jerk, And laying his finger aside of his nose And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose. He sprung to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle, And away they all flew, like the down of a thistle: But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight?—? Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night.
