    I am so sorry for your loss, and I am realizing how hard it is to write something here. I first met Tommy when we were in a play together called " The Bleeding Tree" at Texas State in San Marcos. He was such a genuinely nice guy and free spirit. I remember he took me to buy my first pair of rollerblades (with all of the safety accessories, of course!), helped me move several times, supported me in my musical endeavors through the years, and most importantly he was a good listener and taught me how to enjoy life and have fun.

    I remember he was so proud of you Joan, when you were in graduate school, and Tammy, he would share funny stories about you (I think you were in college in Louisiana at the time). Gary, he would share his fond memories of your family's time in Japan. He loved you all so much.

    I hate when "life happens" and you fall out of touch with good friends. Tommy will always be in my thoughts, and I am so grateful to have known him.

    I recall fondly playing pick-up basketball games with the faculty on Thursday nights in ASIJ gym. Sometimes Mr. Mayfield also joined and played together. We hung out a few times as we lived around the same neighborhood. Although we lost touch after ASIJ, thankful for Facebook. I am saddened by this news but am sure his spirit and love for fun and adventure remains.

    I love you, Tommy. I miss you. I am thankful for all the time I had with you, but wish it could have lasted forever. I was looking forward to our plan to 'not be married' to each other for the rest of our lives. I will forever be your Baby, love.
