    All Tom’s family in the UK including his sister in law Edith, nephew Ian and niece Lorna and their families were very sad to hear of his recent passing. We have fond memories of vacations as children and time spent with the James family and hope his family in the USA can take some comfort from the fact he lived a long and active life and earned much respect in his own community. Reunited with our favourite Aunt Pat now. Love from all in UK.
