Collect of Ralph Chambers with his grandchildren Lily and Lucas in 2012. See SWNS story SWTHAI; A Brit sent a final message home from Thailand telling his grandkids "I love you" just an hour a car mounted the pavement and killed him. Doting Ralph Chambers, 68, was enjoying a drink with his friend outside a bar when the driver swerved to avoid a dog and ploughed into Ralph. Close pal Tony Walden, who had swapped seats with him moments earlier, survived the horror smash on December 28 but Ralph died at the scene. Ralph's three daughters Rae, 42, Laura, 36, and Jemma, 29, said they feel lost without their dad who had four grandchildren. Laura, mother to Lily, eight, Lucas, six, and baby Leo who is just 10-weeks-old, said: "He texted me an hour before and said 'Tell the grandkids I love them."
