Highlands mourns a “beautiful young man”

FRIENDS of the young Bowral man killed on Saturday night after being king-hit on a Kings Cross street are struggling to make sense of his death.Thomas Kelly’s family, who had rushed to his bedside at St Vincents Hospital, made the decision to turn off his life support system at 8pm last Monday.Tom’s three best mates were Exeter triplets Henry, Tom and Jack Hobson.The boys said on Thursday that Tom was like another brother to them.“We only have a few close friends and Tom was one of them,” Jack said.“He was like a brother to us.”Tom Hobson said he last spoke with his 18-year-old mate at about 6pm the night he was hit.He said his friend was excited because he was about to have a night out with his new girlfriend.The triplets next saw Tom at St Vincent’s Hospital on Monday.“When we walked in and saw him on the life support machine it was a big shock, he was unrecognisable,” Jack said.“We just broke to the floor in tears.”The boys said their friend was the kind of person who always looked out for his mates and was always the first to try and make peace.“He was someone you could talk to, someone you could rely on and trust. He always had your back,” Tom Hobson said.Jack said Tom loved music and he passed this passion on to the triplets.“He was a very talented musician. He played the piano, guitar, drums and the clarinet.”The two Toms, as they were often referred to, would sometimes switch places, with Tom Kelly pretending to be the third triplet to confuse people and get a laugh.Jack and Tom also shared a love of fitness and recently spent three hours waiting in line together to get their photo taken with one of their heroes, weightlifter Ronnie Coleman.“I wouldn’t have wanted to be with anyone else,” Jack said.The triplets said they wanted their mate to be remembered as a gentleman with a good sense of humour who embraced life.“He always put people before himself, he was a champion bloke,” triplet Tom said.“We lost a friend and the world’s lost a beautiful young man.”This story Administrator ready to work first appeared on 苏州美甲培训学校.
