"Tom was a very generous and loving boy, lovednnot just by his family but by his many, many, friends. Tom would help everyone who needed it and has seen friends through many hard times always putting them first.He was mad on cars, and with friends was always tinkering with them. He loved motor sport from a very young age, and was a big fan of Mercedes F1 team and Lewis Hamilton.It is hard to describe how this has affected us, but needless to say that he will always be in our thoughts and those no doubt of his friends."
