Many brothers and sisters will remember Tom & Enid Metcalfe. Enid was well known for her tremendous support as the coordinator for our parents’ group in the seventies and eighties. She was a mum and a big sister to everyone. Enid went to her eternal home in August 2013 and Tom is joining her now. He left this world in the early hours of his 95th birthday at the end of August 2021.
Tom was from Chile, but lived in the UK for many years and spoke perfect “Queen’s English” as well as his native Spanish. He was a clever businessman and worked a long time for the famous Allen Bradley company as a sales engineer. He and Enid have one son and two grandsons.
Tom and Enid were blessed in Korea in 1997 as a previously-married couple, along with hundreds of other couples. They were one of the most loving and hospitable couples you could ever meet. Even when Tom had to go to work, he allowed numerous young Unificationist fundraisers to stay at his house, with only one condition – that he could have free access to the bathroom from 7–7.30 every morning! What a heart!
His son, James, and grandsons, Sam and Josh, have arranged Tom’s funeral, which will take place on Friday 24th September at 11.30am in Southampton. Tom will be liberated at the European CheonBo ceremony on 26th September. The departure of the Metcalfe couple feels like the end of a particular era in our UK Heavenly Parent’s Holy Community, but just imagine their joy when being reunited in their eternal home. Let’s all wish Tom a great send off and a wonderful future.
