Although Tom was an extremely amazing musician and composer he was also one of the smartest people I've ever known. My conversations with Tom will be something I will always remember and cherish forever. Tom has been a true inspiration in my life in terms of following your passion and doing what you "really" want to do and not just following the status quo. Tom lived his dream with passion and gusto, something we can all learn from in our days on earth. Tom is back to his passion, making music and mesmerizing the audience.

My husband and I loved his music. We went to The In Between Lounge many times to hear him play. What a musical prodigy he was! God bless his wife and family!
