the death of our dear father, Captain Sir Tom Moore.
We are so grateful that we were with him during the last hours of his life; Hannah, Benjie, and Georgia
by his bedside and Lucy on FaceTime. We spent hours chatting to him, reminiscing about our childhood
and our wonderful mother. We shared laughter and tears.
“The last year of our father’s life was nothing short of remarkable. He was rejuvenated and experienced
things he’d only ever dreamed of.
“Whilst he’d been in so many hearts for just a short time, he was an incredible father and grandfather,
and he will stay alive in our hearts forever.”
His grieving daughters praised the “extraordinary” NHS and carers who helped their father in the last weeks
and the year of his life.
They branded them “unfalteringly professional, kind and compassionate” and thanked them for “giving us many
more years with him than we ever would have imagined”.
The statement added: “Over the past few days our father spoke a great deal about the last 12 months and
how proud he felt at being able to leave behind the growing legacy of his Foundation.
“We politely ask for privacy at this time so we can grieve quietly as a family and remember the wonderful
100 years our father had. “Thank you.”
