Remembering Tom’s funeral

Thinking today of everyone who travelled from far and wide to attend Tom’s funeral, one year ago today. We, his family ,would like to thank everyone again for being there. We find it comforting to know how well our beautiful son was thought of.                   

                          Carol and Dave.

everyday is like sunday

 

 

I often come back to this site hoping to find something I haven’t seen or didn’t know about Tom. I wanted to add another post myself but find it harder to put into words now – except in thinking of you all. He is everywhere and nowhere, in all our joys and sorrows and jukeboxes and quiet laughs and pockets full of loose change.

Memories of Tom

Walking next to him in the rain him taller talking about work, where we were going next and stopping to buy Regals at the newsagents in Soho
Falling out for a couple of years when we were 20 over something I can’t really remember and that we never talked about after.
Meeting him drunk outside the Odeon in Leicester square on his birthday then going for some more drinks.
Watching him with admiration when he challenged a London tour guide about his knowledge on where Charles Dickens lived
Being at the front of the line carrying his coffin
Helping bury him at the Liverpool road cemetery
Crying when he died and drinking a bottle of wine the night I heard
Going off menu and eating 100 year old egg in Chinatown
Him cooking an overcooked partridge at my house and me pretending to enjoy it
Being annoyed he never had a mobile phone for ages
Thinking he was good looking and clever
Sharing my small bedroom at home when we were 16 after a night out at Manhattans
Reading books and lending me books
Going to see Laura Viers and asking for the money based on how he ranked the performance
Meeting him the day after Wilson was born, driving home, having a beer, watching an Elvis impersonator and giving him a hug
Him writing on Amazon posting fake reviews of autobiographies
Joking that we were going to write a guide to “Life after being a celebrity” feat. Bernie Clifton & Keith and Orville
Feeling proud of him when I saw him talking to my other friends
Both of us getting jealous if other people were impacting on our night out
Him seeing me off to the train at Charing Cross after we had been out
He would get pokey when he got drunk
Watching comedy on telly and laughing at my old house
Telling me I had a “nice set up going on” the last time I saw him
Feeling sad that his last text message had self-deleted
Being a constant
Rubbish with money and always had coins in multiple pockets
Saying “Don’t you worry about me sunshine”

Tom

Tom had recently completed his PhD, and I was either very close to finishing mine or about an hour from a nervous breakdown, depending on how you looked at it.  We were discussing the merits of the whole endeavour and the enormous amount of time spent on it.  I suggested that perhaps medicine would have been a better option as at least the pay once finished would be commensurate with the time spent in school.  His reply was that an MD was a ‘trade’ degree and that I might as well become a plumber.  This naturally led to spending the next half an hour discussing the merits of plumbing both as a day to day job and as a means of securing financial security. This type of conversation happened in some form or another everyday for the unfortunately brief time I knew Tom.  We’d have coffee, or lunch, or dinner, or drinks and talk about everything from American politics to the various strengths and weaknesses of denoising techniques for magnetoencephalography. 

I’ll miss that the most I think, the conversations. 

Tom had the rare combination of graceful brilliance and a deep connection with anyone he came into contact with.  Everyone I know who met him felt a special bond, even if it was only once. He was always eager to help with a problem no matter how big or small it was.  I was honoured to be his friend and be able to call him one.  While my heart is heavy with the loss, I’m extremely happy that I was fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to get to know him.  He was one of the great ones.
