Memories Timeline


  1. Knowing him for only a couple of minutes means knowing pure kindness. I am sure there was another side of the coin, but in him, it was impossible to tell.
    An great technician, an even better musician, and above all, an amazing human being. It was an absolute honor having met him and he will not be forgotten.
    Conocerlo por un par de minutos es conocer la bondad pura. Estoy seguro que había otro lado de la moneda, pero en él, era imposible de saber.
    Un gran técnico, un mejor músico, y sobre todo, un ser humano asombroso. Fue un honor absoluto el haberle conocido y no será olvidado.
    I miss your laugh, Tommie. ¡Dímelo!

  2. T-Nibbs:

    I am simply stunned! I am at a loss for words. You reached out to me a while ago and we spoke. We laughed and reminisced about old times. You sounded so happy and full of life. You had me go to YouTube, check out your video and give you my opinion while we were on the phone. I never imagined that would be our last conversation. Rest in Peace. I will miss you my friend.

  17. Tommie was a beautiful person whose light seemed to be always shining twice as brightly as everyone else. I am grateful for having known him and the things he showed me through his actions.

    His life was a blessing and, according to Emerson, a huge success:

    "To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded."

    — Ralph Waldo Emerson

  18. Tommie was an incredible friend and colleague, the kind of person who lit up every room he walked into with his wide grin and sense of humor. I'm so lucky to have known him. My deepest condolences.

  19. Tommie,
    your beautiful smile lit up any room you were in. Your loyal friendship made you the best friend to have, and your deep sense of family taught us all the importance of staying true to the family that grew you. You were of us Washington Heights, of the neigborhood Pinehurst of your family of your friends. You will be missed but never forgotten.
    Love always
