Hannah Ingram-Moore said: “Nothing can prepare you for that sudden wrench when their time comes to leave. Not hearing his chuckle, catching the mischievous twinkle in his eye, hearing the shuffle of his now-famous walking frame.
“We are missing his routines, like surreptitiously feeding the dogs porridge out of his bowl, or having lunch and asking us how our day is going. It’s the little noises and habits of people close to you that become deafening in their absence.”
Capt Sir Tom, 100, who became an icon with his £33million walk for the NHS, died on February 2.
He had battled pneumonia and Covid – the disease that set his lockdown endeavours in motion.
Capt Sir Tom lived with Hannah, her husband Colin and their children Benjie, 17, and Georgia, 12, in Marston Moretaine, Beds.
Hannah said: “We lived at home as an inter-generational family for over 13 years.
Although, like many, we weren’t perfect, we were perfectly happy. “Each one of us is feeling my father’s absence.”
