Thinking of Lew and his family on his 72nd birthday. Still so sadly missed xx

27 May - your birthday, beautiful man. Nearly five years now and still so missed. But I am reflecting it is now time to let you go. I believe that where you are there is no yesterday or today or tomorrow but that you live now in eternal joy and peace with the Father. And that time means something quite different to you - an earthly birthday is just without meaning or significance. (And I'm pretty sure you wouldn't care for being 72 anyway!) So - live on in my memories - always my hero. But enjoy the great adventure. With my love MrsS

Remembering the sublime, the peerless Lewis Collins as his 72nd birthday approaches. He absolutely breathed charisma and was always a joy to watch. Thanks Lewis for just being. Never forgotten. Much love Sue xx

Happy birthday Lew
Sending you love and kisses forever.

beautiful Lewis, remembering you on your birthday, just to let you know that you are in my thoughts today and all days. You are missed so much. I will spend the day visiting your plaque at the national arboretum.

Still love you so much Lew, even at 72! Happy birthday, wherever you are. Jane x

So hard to believe you're no longer with us Lew, even after all this time. I've been trying to picture you at 72 and I just can't. You are frozen in time which means fans like me will never forget you, you are always our beloved Bodie, our beloved Lew and will never be forgotten. Love from L. xx

Happy Birthday Lewis, missed but never forgotten

It still seems incredible that Lew is not here to celebrate today but that doesn't stop me from remembering his birthday. He was such a huge part of my life during The Professionals and the years afterwards, I followed him avidly! He made such an impact on me and influenced me in lots of ways, even though I never met him. And over the years he proved himself to be unique, clever and caring, all that wrapped up in a lovely man everyone misses. My heart goes out to Michelle and the boys who must be remembering birthdays spent with him. I will never forget you Lewis. xx

Happy Birthday Lew. I feel so grateful that you existed. Never, ever forgotten. LCH xxx
