|Let the memory of Tom be with us forever|
"Thinking of you today. You had a mighty presence in your time here. I'm sure you are regaling everyone there with your sense of humor. You are missed, my friend."
"Tom always cracked me up as he would say I remember you in your first meeting, whether he did or not he was and still is a huge part of my recovery. I will miss you Tom but know you r up there watching down on the thousands of people you have helped over the years including me and for that I am ever gratefull! Trina"
"On this Thanksgiving Day, I am reminded of the time Mr. Duley gave to me while I was still out there. What a joy to find him and my new sobriety waiting for me at YANA. Time and Tom have passed but his words of wisdom will always remain. Angels appear in all kinds of disguises and I'll be forever grateful that Tom floated into my life."
"Tom was one person I knew that walked the talked. I knew Tom for many years and his only concern was "How are you doing?" AA was his life. Now he has joined so many of our fellows that have passed over. He did it SOBER!"
"Tom's perserverance, dedication and persistance to AA touched so many lives and was instrumental in bringing truth and solidarity to all of us who walk this beautiful path here in Hilton Head and I'm sure many other places.
Volumes of gratitude for setting the pace and loving the unlovable until we could love ourselves...Love and gratitude forever."
"Tom will be missed and was a sad day and loss of his passing.
He was my sponsor and friend and has touched and helped many people. You will always be in my memory and thoughts."
"How does one find sufficiency in words when trying to express how valued a presence Tom was in my life ("I'm pullin for ya kid"), and in the lives of so many others? Tom will always have a spot in my heart and I can only try to pass on what I learned from him."
"I don't know where to begin! Tom was a vital part of the recovering community for over half his life and a part of mine for over 25 yrs.His wit and ardor to help has saved countless lives. He will be remembered always with love and gratitude."
"Tom welcomed me to the YANA community eleven years ago with open arms. His wit and loving wisdom added immeasurably to me and me sobriety. I hope to pass on his legacy to all I meet. Tom's
presence will be missed but he can never be forgotten."
