    So sad and shocked to lose our brother in law, Tom.
    Between the tears we will laugh and smile at the memories and stories we all shared. Memories like when Dave put a duck in your fishing basket and it pecked you when you put your hand in for your butties, those awful crazy waders that you would insist on wearing, the time when you went in that burnt-out house and fell through the floor to rescue that stray rabbit for us, those stories of your holidays with Rhoda and John, (parents in law) where you were a “little bit” tipsy.
    Such happy times that will help to ease our pain,
    God bless and RIP Tom

    Thank you Tom for taking me to the “midge market” and for being forced to watch Quest for Camelot with me. I wish I could have seen you one last time. I will miss you terribly but most of all, I will miss your laugh.

    Such a shock and sad loss. Tom was always a happy person who always had a laugh and something to say. I have fond memories of Tom when I was a young teenager, and remember a few trips to the local working man clubs for a shandy & amp; a game of darts. I will miss him. Dave

    Our love and sympathy is sent to Lorraine and all Tom’s family. I will remember Tom as having an infectious warm smile with a hearty laugh! God bless from us all x x x

    I’ve known Tom since the early 1970’s.
    A quiet man till you got to know him.
    He loved music particularly soul and reggae. Lorraine, Tome and I had some good nights out together.
    Tom always had some tale to tell, usually about some mischief played on him or others at work. Tom and Lorraine made a lot of good friends together.
    Tom laughed a lot, enjoyed socialising and had many happy holidays with Lorraine and our mum and dad.
    You will be greatly missed by us all. Rest in peace.
    Jacqueline, your sister- in – law. xxx

    It is with great sadness I begin to write this message remembering aspects of Tom’s life that touched me and my family.Tom had an infectious laugh and never lost his Caribbean spirit. He often liked to tell a story which nearly always ended in hoots of laughter. Much of our conversations centred around a variety of sports and I always regretted never seeing him play cricket.I enjoyed many family meals with Tom. He liked his food and was always good company with a big plate of prawns and a tin of Stella.
    May I offer my sincere condolences to Lorraine and hope she can, given time, move on with her life without Tom but keep those treasured memories close to her heart.
