Two years since you left us dear Lew, the world lost one of it's best that day. It still hurts at times, we miss you so much. But you live on in our memories and in our hearts, that will never change. Not only were you a brilliant actor and gorgeously attractive, you proved yourself to be a clever, brave and caring man in so many ways, we are still finding out what wonderful things you did during your life. And you are still my heartthrob! Kind wishes and love to Michelle, Oliver, Elliot and Cameron, thinking of you specially today. Sandra xx

Thinking of you today beautiful man. Cant believe two years have passed since you left us. Love to your family.

Dear Lew! I'm still sad knowing that you had to move on, and yet you're in my thoughts now, as much as ever. Though it was hard to let you go, I'm buoyed by the works you left for us to enjoy and the fact that you were here with us, for a time.

Lewis Collins, you'll never be forgotten especially on this sad day. My heart goes out to Michelle and the boys. Love Kelly xxx

My thoughts and love go to Lewis's family at this time. Two years, it only seems days that we used to see him on our screens. He will be missed always. God bless.

My thoughts and prayers have been with Michele and the boys ever since that terrible day I heard Lew had been taken from this earth. I can not imagine especially that Michele must go through every Thanksgiving from now on. H e seemed to be such a wonderful man and you can tell from the photo that Michele published of Lew with her and their sons that he worshiped his family right up until the very end. I know he is watching over them all from heaven and one day they will be reunited. Again my prayers to his family and friends for the loss of a beautiful soul.

Two years ago lew lost is battle with cancer and so my heart goes out to Michele and the boys we all miss him so very much none more than you and your boys but he always be in our heart now and for ever more I will to night go out in my back garden with a glass of bubbly look for the brightest star and drink a toast to the loveable lew and tell that we still love and miss him so much and I no I will not be able to stop the tear for running down from my eyes God bless you micelle and beautifull boys lew pride and joy

Extra special thoughts for Michelle and the boys today, it doesn't seem real that it has been 2 years since Lew passed away. Two years since all Lew fans the world over were thrown into a state of shock and sheer disbelief. Lew you were someone ultra special and loved by so many, you certainly gave me so many special memories. Sleep tight Lew, love and miss you and you are always in my heart. Marian xxx

Two years, that's hard to take in. 27th November 2013 was such a horrible day for me and many of my fellow Lew friends. Even though he lived in the US I still entertained hopes of getting to meet him one day - he gave off such a light. Through seeing him in Jack the Ripper that led me to the Professionals - and some of the greatest memories and friends of my life. Thank you Lew. Ellie x

Lewis was a "one off" with a kind and generous heart giving freely of his time on behalf of others. A truly beautiful man with a smile to light up even the darkest crevice. He had a mesmerising presence on screen. Nothing showbizzy about him like so many in his profession, just a natural guy with great charm, charisma and humour that everyone who met him warmed to. So very much missed and loved by so many. Thoughts and special wishes to Michelle and family. Fly high free spirit.Lx

Very sad anniversary tomorrow. My heart goes out to his family and his friends. He will be missed for a very long time.

Well its two years since Lew's sad passing, just need to say how very much he is still missed,how a light went out in my heart on that sad day. He was a wonderful man who i was lucky enough to have known. Lew you are sadly missed but will never be forgotten. My love and wishes go out to michelle and the boys, xx

I will always remember Lewis's cheeky smile and gorgeous blue eyes.He was a very big part of my childhood. It's a massive shame that his acting career wasn't as successful as he would have wanted. Maybe he should have gone into modelling instead. He certainly had the looks. I never met Lewis but I certainly miss him

I am thankful for the many roles Lewis played over the years so that I can go on enjoying his acting. It's a pleasure to watch him work. Thank you for sharing him with us! Best wishes to his family.

A beautiful man , taken too soon xx

my hero growing up still watch his films an movies now rip lew

It's frustrating that he isn't around to make more TV I would have loved to have seen him still performing today - he was like a fine wine that just got better with age - sadly missed

Forever loved. Shirl xx

I have been an ardent fan of the fantastic duo of Lewis Collins and Martin Shaw. They are vivid reminders of my vibrant youth. I will be their fans forever.

Greatly missed.

Remembering Lewis as the 27th comes round again. You are much missed. MrsS

As the second anniversary of Lewis's death approaches, I would just like to send my warmest wishes to Michelle, Oliver, Elliott and Cameron. I will think of them on the 27th and raise a glass to beautiful Lewis. His life was cut short far too soon but the memory of this very exceptional man will live on. Sue xxx

Hi Lew,
Just wanted to say hi for Friday, 27th November 2015, which will be an extremely sad and difficult day for all of us who love you. This day will be especially difficult for Michelle, Oliver, Elliott and Cameron and although they have each other for support, I know their grief will be indescribable. I'm finding it difficult to still come to terms with losing you and the fact that this will be two years. I'm trying to concentrate on my lovely memories when I came to see you back in July and how special it was to drive down to see you each morning and chat with you. It was both overwhelming and magical at the same time. I remember one morning when I was standing in front of you, I was rabbiting on about something and a lady came into the building, she looked at me as I was chatting away to you and she must have thought I was completely bonkers. You know, I loved chatting with you each morning, I couldn't have wished for a nicer start to each day. I am so glad I had that time with you, I will treasure that week I spent there. Remember I will always love you, I will always miss you. Yours forever, Lyn xxx

The days slip by and turn to weeks, months, a year, two years. Memories of others may fade, but Lew, you are immortalised forever in our thoughts, our pictures, our DVDs, our hearts. We haven't lost you. My thoughts today are with your family and friends, those who knew you. x
