Thomas was a lovable member of our family. We don’t want to paint a perfect image of Thomas because he had his faults like everyone else. He liked to have a drink, and just lived a happy life and enjoyed a good time with his friends and family.
Thomas had a kind loving nature and the people he did touch he would do anything to help them.
Thomas was an idol for his brother, sisters and nephews and he would look after them.
Thomas death has shattered us as a family. He is missed so much and there will always be an empty space that will remain in our hearts.
