Felix, Emily and I have been deeply touched and comforted by the affection
and admiration for Leo, and the sympathy for us, expressed in the many letters
and cards we have received. As you probably know Leo died peacefully
at home after a long, cruel illness and we all miss him very much.
The Cooper family would particularly like to thank the doctors and district nurses at the Frithwood Surgery and all members of the Gloucestershire National Health Service for their incredible kindness during Leo’s long illness. We would like to thank everyone for their wonderful letters and messages of support.
Nor can we praise enough the selfless dedication of Leo’s live-in carers and those carers who visited him several times a day.
Nor would we have survived without the warmth and solicitude of our neighbours in Bisley.
I would just like to wish everybody a Happy Christmas.
