Tom Loback has passed away.

It is with great sadness that I post that Tom Loback passed away on the 5th March, in the arms of his wife, Susan. He had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer only a few weeks ago. To quote Susan;

'My darling Tom Passed peacefully in his sleep from my arms into the Arms of God. At 7:35 this morning.

I am sure you will all join me in prayers for the man who brought us so much joy through his work. I regret that I never met him personally although I know a few of you did. I got to know him a little through Facebook and my correspondence regarding miniatures. I know there are a lot of people whom he touched with his artistry, compassion and friendship. May he rest in peace and his memory live on in our thoughts.

Hello, I stumbled upon yr blog when looking into these lil Irish Brigade tin soldiers my Dad had. I was saddened to read that the man my father had become friendly with,via the post had passed away. My Da passed in 2007 & I knew of these soldiers ,but was too heartbroken to pay them the attention they deserve. My mom has since given them to my son,who is a proud as a peacock to have.
