Tom, I don't know why, but i woke up with a quite an unexpected picture in my mind. You, Chris Melia & myself. The look on your face as we all unveiled the rolling chassis you took delivery of in the UK. I can vividly remember the look of pure, childish 'glee' on your face, the dance in your step, the obvious animation in your behaviour. I'm guessing that you behaved in the same vein on the birth of your first born.
Well Tom, i didn't know you that well, but i know you are out there and not far away from this forum and it's members. You can't reach out and physically correct us when we ' turn the spanner the wrong way ' . However, it's clear to me that the likes of you and The Captain will, in subtle ways, still remind us of your presence. I'm sure where you are, you are never short of the right tool for the job and the welds flow as they always should... and there is never any splatter..
