Poetic Obituaries: "He was the most charming person

I've ever met," he [Trevor Ellis] said [of Colm Thomas].

"Where he lived, he was known as the writer.

"He was a wonderful brother-in-law to me, it's a shame we didn't see each other more often.

"He always cared about my wife (Aeronwy) and respected his older brother, Llewellyn.

"They were a very close threesome, when it came down to it, they were together."

Colm was born on July 25, 1949, the third child of Dylan and Caitlin Thomas.
