Absent friends.

Posted by Waspie_Dwarf , in Good friends and jolly good c... 07 June 2008 · 284 views

It had been my intention to write about the great day I had this time last week. About the thrills and tensions of watching Wasps win another title and about the enjoyment of celebrating with friends afterwards. That will have to wait. Sadly one of those friends is no longer with us.

Tom was in good spirits and (so I thought) good health when I last saw him on Saturday. Tom was the father of my close friend Simon and a friend in his own right. The word "nice" simply does not do Tom justice, he was a truly lovely man. He never lost his Geordie sense of humour and was a pleasure to know.

Despite being in his eighties and having fought back from cancer and a stroke in 2005 he was still more full of life than many men half his age. His sudden death on Thursday has left me stunned.

My thoughts are with Maud (his wife of over sixty years), Simon and the rest of the family.

RIP Tom, it was an honour and privilege to have known you.




I'm sorry to hear this M, just remember the memories will stay with you.  ((Hugs))

Not to worry Waspie, all is well. Your friend lived a great life from what you've told us. Such is all any of us can aspire to. Shout out a hearty "Go Wasps!" in his memory!

The view from my bedroom isn't usually a spectacular one, but every now and then Mother Nature dips into her pots of paint are produces a sky like this.
