Really sad day for me today. My dad passed away peacefully this morning. Whilst he never 'got' my obsession with small soldiers; he supported me in anything I did and was a great dad. He fought for so long against Parkinson's and Louis Bodie's dementia but he gave up his fight at 10:10 this morning. Rest in peace dad, we love you.


  1. Such sad news. Us Thurlows are thinking of you All...

  2. I Did Not Die

    Do not stand at my grave and weep.
    I am not there. I do not sleep.

    I am a thousand winds that blow;
    I am the diamond glints on snow.
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain;
    I am the gentle Autumn’s rain.

    When you awaken in the morning’s hush.
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft star that shines at night.

    Do not stand at my grave and cry.
    I am not there;
    I did not die.

    My thoughts are with you and your family.
