The last time I saw him was at Labour conference in Brighton, brimming with life and good-natured confidence. I am so sorry he isn’t with us any more. He loved his family and friends, worked hard campaigning for the party and would have made a great MEP. He was truly a legend.
I am Dr Mohammad Mustafa Mussamem from Afghanistan. I and Del Singh had worked together in a number of projects in Afghanistan. He was not only a good colleague, but a true friend of me and other team members. He was a professional man with broad expertise. He was always open to help anyone he could by any means. He was a funny man and was so interested to learn Afghani jokes and use them among colleagues. He always tried to make us laugh in order to not get bored with work. I really miss him!
I met Del a few years back at a Labour Party BBQ. My mum (Maggie Hughes) invited me along for the day. I had heard so much about Del through my mum and all being so positive. When I met Del my mum was totally right he was funny and had such a great sense of humour and made me feel very welcome. Del was a pleasure to be around and made me happy as he always put a dmile on my mums face whenever she had a bad day for what ever reason. Del it was a pleasure to have met you and you may not be present but you sure will never be forgotten. Thank you for making my mum laugh and smile and for being a good friend to mum. Take care love Alaina X
