  5. Uncle Tom enabled us to get to know him.He was someone we chose to call every couple of weeks and he kept us well informed of all things in Victoria.He was the encyclopedia of all the family’s information.
    Tom was a carer, a generator of belly laughs for us all, a generous man who made sure the family kept ‘in contact’, especially for those of us in FNQ, Singapore and Hong Kong. It’s up to us now to keep that going.
    Thanks to Paula and Stan and Bonnie’s family who helped care for Tommy in latter years.
    Uncle Tom , you leave a lot of love behind for us to share around.
