A letter from a parent

Hello Mr Wilson

Yesterday i attended southampton solent uni with my son Garry Halsey who has just started a football degree ,I just wanted to say how moved my son my daughter and myself was at the tribute that you and your family have paid to your Daughter . We all sat in tears watching the photos of Lisa and listening to her music ,WOW you are right she was amazing and she did light up the room . I can only thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping my Garry to fullfill his dream to go to uni and to be able to afford it . I love my job I work with adults with Learning difficulties but it does not pay to well ,but then sometimes money isnt everything obviously to Garry it is at the moment , so thank you again for stepping in where I could not. I can not begin to imagine the sadness that you and your family must feel over losing Lisa in such a tragic way but you have my every sympathy .The tribute is amazing and what a wonderful way to keep her memory alive .

Thank you

Caron Unwin-Lee
Garry Halsey’s mum
