I used to print jokes off the internet and give them to Tom to read whenever I saw him. One joke in particular really made him chuckle. His exact words were, 'That's a classic!"

Anyway I thought I'd share it with everyone:

A woman wanted to become a nun so she went to the nunnery and talked to the Mother Superior.

The Mother Superior said, "You must take a vow of silence and can only say two words every 5 years."

The woman agreed and after the first 5 years, the Mother Superior came to her and said, "You have been here 5 years. What are your two words?"
"Food cold!" the woman replied.

Five more years went by and the Mother Superior came to her again and said "What are your two words?"
"Robe dirty!" the woman exclaimed.

Another 5 years went by and the Mother Superior came to her and said, "What are your two words?"
"I quit!" said the woman.

"Well," the Mother Superior replied, "I am not surprised. You have done nothing but complain ever since you got here!"

Very sad to hear about the passing of Tom.

You were one in a million who always made me laugh. You were so funny even when you didn't mean to be. Unfortunately there's not many of your kind around anymore. I always enjoyed popping up to see you and having our chats about football and snooker on the balcony with a cup of tea and a roll-up.

I hope you have found peace. You will always be remembered fondly and with a smile and I'm glad you were part of my life.

A true legend.

Dear Tom
I know I didn't see you very often, but when I did you always made me very welcome. Now the time has come for you to be out of all terrible pain and discomfort you have been in and join your lovely Joan.
Love and Best Wishes

If tears could build a stairway
And thoughts a memory lane
I'd walk right up to heaven
And bring you home again.

Always in my thoughts, forever in my heart. Good night and god bless xx
