Rest in Peace Tom. My condolences to your mother Carol.
I just found out I knew this young man when he was just a child. I remember him as a bright lively young boy full of fun. Blonde hair and never sat still. His mother was a hairdresser and used to cut my mother in law and my wifes hair. We haven't seen them for several years now but my wife put two and two together and realised the connection.
Once again. Rest in Peace Tom. I know just how much your Mum loved you when you were a child and how she will now miss you so dreadfully.
