Sorry to hear about Tommy
Toby, Wezi, And family, Sorry for the loss of your Dad. Having been through this, I know the emptiness you are feeling. The thing that helped me get through it, was, my Dad told me, “Don’t cry for me, my suffering or worry of any kind will be over.” I remember that despite everything else that was going on.
Rest In Peace Tommy, you made the world a better place. Kevin
