Being that you are one those people he considered family, we would like to share a little piece of him with you. Lemmy touched all our lives in a way we don’t think any of us could ever forget, but with these ashes you not only keep the memories you have, you keep Lemmy with you forever. He was Lemmy. He played Rock ‘n’ Roll Don’t Forget Him”
