A Tribute in Words and Pictures to Ste Thomson

We would like to thank  everyone  who attended the funeral and who sent messages of condolence and tribute   for their  support during this difficult time. It was especially moving to learn that Stephen had so many good friends, many of whom  turned up ,  and who also organised a face book network of over sixty people to share their memories of him.   We are giving the tribute book  to Stephen’s sons,  Ricky and Casey,  to keep  as part of a memory box  which  we are putting together  for them .

We have raised nearly £1000  for Alcohol Concern and would like to thank  everyone who  has given so generously. It is still not too late  to make a donation by logging on to : www.justgiving.com/phil-cohen1.

Thanks to the generosity of Liz  Haggard we are  setting up a bursary  at Birkbeck College , where Stephen was a student ,  for  first year  students  who   are in financial   difficulties and who need some support to continue their studies.

We hope that  those of you who were not able to attend the funeral  service might like to listen to the audio and  also watch the visual tribute which is soundtracked with two of Stephen’s favourite songs .  We have also uploaded a powerpoint   showing  a selection of Stephen’s work from the sketchbook he kept during the last year of his life. If you would like copies of any of these images please email Jean  at jeanmcneil.49@hotmail.com.

Below  is the full and final version of the tribute text.
