Emily Hamilton

Life will never be the same. August 1977 you became the proudest man alive when you became a Daddy.  From that day forward you took us all on a fabulous journey.  Early memories include fishing in the river with my socks and sandals on in Dinas Mawddy, you chasing us around the garden, seaside …

We always referred to you as BIG AL – this was because my sons named you this when we were neighbours – my 2 smaller boys at the time saw you with your big wild beard – and named you instantly the one and only BIG AL! I have so many great memories and …

Dear Alan I’m so sorry that we actually never got to meet properly. A fleeting smile and wave as we passed each other on our bikes on the edge of the Mendips last November and you only seconds later coming to my aid me in my moment of need  The last memory I had …

Dear Alan, Thank you for welcoming me into your home, town, country. I will never forget (yet hardly remember the exact details) my first visit to see Lizzie in the early 2000s. There was definitely a long explanation of a lot of things I didn’t quite understand like footie and cricket. You took me …

Well Grandad, Mr T, Big Al, Alan – what can we say. We’ll leave your singing aside for a moment! Thank you always for your incredibly warm welcome – such happy memories at Middlestone House.  Especially nights returning from the Pelican or Bear and Swan with Emily and the lads to the amazing trays …

Having worked with Alan in various pub companies over 30 years, he became a good friend and confidante. His honesty and integrity in an industry not noted for those two great values, became indispensible. He earned the respect of everyone, even those he was meant to keep an eye on.  I am not sure …

One of my earliest memories was visiting your home and you making me a cuppa in your beloved villa mug. That gesture had a lasting impression on me. You were ever so kind and always cheerful. Never a dull moment whenever I met you in the 12 years I knew. You were full of …

Dearest Alan, My beautiful Lizzie and the amazing Thompson clan. I don’t like to be sad thinking of you, thinking of you not being here, thinking of you all. But instead I hope to smile in memories of you and how lucky I am to have been a part of this amazing family.  Thank …

I have so many treasured memories of you.  Those times  of long ago that only you and I could know.  I recall the day you were born at home when I was sent outside to wait and then Mrs Guest (the neighbour) came out and shouted ‘it’s a boy!’  On your first day of …

I feel so sad knowing that Barry is not here any more. If I could, I would hug him again, a little tighter, and hope to see him one more time. I remember when I named him Barry and he laughed about it alot! When I had a sleepover at Barry and Larry’s with …

I bumped into Alan many years ago at the Rec. We became rugby buddies, and travelled far and wide as ever hopeful Bath supporters (talk about the triumph of hope over experience!) From Gloucester and Leicester to Newcastle, Glasgow and Edinburgh.  From Galway and Dublin to Lyon, Parma and Verona. This picture was taken …
