Greatly missed elder brother of Helen.
Born Andrew Keith Tee in Lincolnshire, always known as "Andy" don't know why his original headstone didn't state that!
Parents split-up when he was very young, sadly I can't even remember dad being at home and Andy was 18 months older than me, so I wonder if he ever remembered dad from then.
Our mother later re-married an horrible man who hated her children from her earlier marriage and made her change their surnames by deed poll from Tee to Lewis.
I sometimes wonder if she should have put all of us in a care home we would have been better off and maybe Andy would have been alive today!
Andy had a hard life never wanted from a young age and was placed in and out of various care homes.
Later on in his mid teens he would come home only to be told he was "no good" so would get into trouble stealing silly things just so he could go back to another "home" i.e. borstal etc.
Shortly before he died he was trying to go and live with his natural father where he was most happy with.
Our father had been living with my auntie and her family..... but at one time it was a little bit more than that as before my mother gave birth to Andy my auntie my mother's sister had a fling with my father and this resulted in a child.
My father was later to spend the rest of his life with my auntie until her death and then with their son Kevin until my father's death in 2006.
Sadly while Andy was visiting our father near Lincoln he had a motor bike accident while following his cousin
Richard and died a few days later.
Andy had a new headstone which was done just before my birth mother's death. She died in January 2005 and I will never visit my brother's grave now as our mother lies with him, how strange she didn't want him in life but did when he died!
Many that read the above will think I am just being very bitter but the horror being the only girl and what I suffered in my childhood home I can not tell here.My mother never helped me only beat me when I asked for her help. I have made sure that I am a better person and mother because of what I suffered in my childhood no child should suffer what I did from the age of 7 until I was a teenager and could fight back!
Much love sent to Colette for sponsoring my brother Andy, it's wonderful to know that even in death he is not forgotten, God bless you sweet lady.
