The Last Post

This was Terry's blog and whilst it has been the easiest way for us as a family to contact his many friends around the world in recent weeks, we now want to leave this blog as our father's legacy. This will be the last post that the family will be making here, it will remain live and accessible on the internet ad infinitum. We will continue to monitor for comments which will be published as appropriate until 29thth February 2012.

However we also want to make sure that his legacy lives on. We have set up an email address which anyone who wants to remain/be in contact with Terry's family can use. It will be administered by his children and we will respond to you as swiftly as we can, we would love to hear from you. The email address is . Over the coming months, we will also be looking at how to harness technology to make his many articles originally published on his blog, more accessible by subject matter, particularly his writing about CLL. If you would like to be kept up to date on the progress of this project, please send your contact details to the new email address.

Terry's Thanksgiving Service is still available to view at we believe that over 140 people around the world watched live on Tuesday, with more watching since.

Finally - in Terry's words "Trust in God and think laterally"

With thanks

We, the family of Terry Hamblin, would like to thank everyone for their kindness in recent days. We have been much touched by the many cards and messages we have received, the various internet tributes, including responses to this blog, and the great attendance, in person and virtually, at today's thanksgiving service. This has been, as you can imagine, a profoundly difficult time for all of us, but the clear articulation of the regard and love in which Terry was held by so many people has been a source of great comfort.

With our thanks

Diane, Karen, Richard, Angela and David Hamblin
