Attack victim Lisa Lees daughter vows to make her proud

The daughter of an Oldham woman who died in the Manchester terror attack has vowed to make her mum proud.

Lisa Lees, 47, from Royton, Oldham, was waiting with her friend Alison Howe, 45, for their teenage daughters together in the foyer of the Arena when the device packed with nuts and bolts exploded, killing them both.

The friends were soon named as among the missing - and eventually their families received the devasting news.

Now Lisa’s daughter, India, has paid an emotional tribute and vowed that she would dedicate her life to making her mum proud.

You were the best mum in the universe and the bestest friend that I could ask for. You always cheered me up when I was upset and have always been there for me.

You have the most beautiful smile and most caring eyes. You are loved by everyone. I will forever miss our girly days out and talking to you about everything. You taught me to ‘believe’ in myself and to do my best. I will make you proud mum, I promise. I love you soooo much, more than anything and always will. My Angel. RIP.

Lisa you are my beautiful, gorgeous wife. You are my life, my soulmate, my best friend. I love you so much and always will. Life will never be the same again.

My heart has been ripped apart, Lisa you really were such an amazing woman, the perfect mum to India and Lauran, and the coolest nanna to Jayden. You brought joy and happiness wherever you were and whoever you were with. You achieved so much in your career as a beauty therapist.

We are all so proud of what you achieved, Lisa you really were such an amazing woman. RIP babe we all love you so much. Till we meet again, love and always forever, Anthony xxx

– Anthony Lees, Lisa's husband

To my beautiful amazing daughter Lisa, I am so proud of you for what you achieved. Little did I know that when I spent the day with you on Sunday May 14th it would be the last time I got to hold you as your life was cut short before your time, through a cowardly act of murder and worse was I was on holiday in Turkey.

You were a wonderful daughter, wife and mother and sister. You achieved such a lot in your life, graduating only last year from university. Before that you won an award of excellence in London for your work with children who had complex mental health issues.

You were an inspiration to all and should have had a great life ahead of you. Instead at the age of 43 your time on earth ended, you are now an angel in God’s garden.

The last five years you looked after and supported me through my illness along with your brother Lee.

Don’t know how we will go on without you but I know you would want us too, my Darling Daughter I love you now and forever.
