I am saddened to hear the news. Tom was a fine gentlemen and he will be missed. May he find peace. My most sincere condolences to his family and loved ones.

Tom could have won a competition with any of these works.

Tom was a great guy and it's a shame to hear that he's no longer with us. My heart goes out to all the family. And although we will miss him, I'm glad we have his works of art to remember him by.

Maybe one of those final images could go in the gallery as a kind of memorial? Like the falcon? Just an idea.

I chatted with him a bit at times when he was active, he was a great guy, I'll miss him being around for sure. Rest in peace Tom.

I'll miss him as well, Only really chatted with him while he was working on his falcon revisited. But he was always so open to suggestions and took any advice very gracefully. I'm among those who will miss him
Condolences to the family. But congratulations as well to his close family and friends, for having the opportunity to have been a part of the life of someone who was so, outstanding of a person.

Sad to hear he seemed like a great guy, it's always the nice ones that go first leaving the bastards behind.

I added Toms final finished work to the gallery would have been nicer if he was around to see it though;

All the best to his family and friends,
