I have lost my dearest friend, we laughed, played darts, had lunches and shared our life with each other, Tom as we say goodbye tomorrow it is not forever, but until we meet again my friend. Sonita you know we will be friends forever, you were Tom’s strength in the last years, you kept him going and really made his life worth living. Alison and Ben, 24yrs ago when our families met in Guyana it seems it was just meant to be. Our families travel similar roads which brought us closer, your dad was so proud of you both and overjoyed at the grands, we will forever have him with us, his smile, his laughter and his positive charming self. My thoughts and prayers are with you all, big hugs.

Our deepest condolences to Sonita, Allison and Ben and the rest of the family. We have cherished memories of lovely and happy times with Tom in Guyana; enjoying his meals in their lovely home made from the fresh vegetable that he grew. And having lots of fun at games night. Tom dedicated much of his time to making Guyana a better place. He is fondly remembered . Rest In Peace dear Tom. 🙏🏻 Nisa and Steve Surujbally

"Brothers No Others ..." A simple pledge, three words, taken more than half-a-century ago and yet, today, still means more than words can ever express. "Eli" (Tom) was one of those brothers who was like no other!
