Thomas Andrew McPAKE

Thomas Andrew How I would love to pick up the phone today,
And hear you speak in the same old way,
Put the kettle on mum, I'll be along just now,
You would come bounding in and we would sit and talk,
Putting the world to rights with our politics.
Too soon it was time for you to go,
With a hug and a kiss, and a teary wave from the car, you were away.
These are my ever-lasting memories, of my dearly loved, sorely missed son, Tommy.
Love mum and all the family xxx.
