"Happy Heavenly Birthday, Tom. I woke up Tuesday (March 21) wishing that I once again could call you to say Happy Birthday. Of course, I wish every day I could call you, or see your name on my phone with an incoming call. Always missed.  With love from Gabriel and me."

"I know how much Tom was loved and missed by all who knew him and my heart goes out especially to his parents whose lives are so much poorer for his absence. He will never be forgotten."

This tribute was added by Dawn Arballo on 19th March 2015

"The death of a child, no matter their age, is typically a very difficult concept for the parents to accept and causes a wound that doesn't heal. While I did not have the pleasure to have met Tom in person, I have come to know him from the stories that his mother Barbara and his father Elmer shared have with me. At this upcoming anniversary of his death one year ago in April, he is still loved, missed, thought about and grieved for each day. His passing has brought deep sorrow and many tears but, praise to God, he still lives in the memories and the hearts of his family and loved ones. Please accept my sincerest and continued condolences for his loss.

"Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal."

"It is said that some people can change your life just by knowing them. Tom was certainly that person. No matter where he went, he left a friend. For that matter, he made friends just over the phone. My son and I were among the lucky ones, we got to spend time with him in person as well. (Certainly not enough.) He was the consummate businessman- and on the other hand, the most loyal and caring friend with a wicked sense of humor. He inspired people to live life. He may have bit off more than he could chew at times but he was always a winner for trying. He was loved by many, including us."

"Tom and I have been great friends for many years....and we are still friends because I know that he is just in another place looking over me. We met because of business, but our friendship grew to me even more important. We did not meet in person, but emailed and called each other on a frequent basis....sharing thoughts on business, politics, publishing, ethics, and what is important in life. I loved his enthusiasm for moving forward with all things and trying to make the world a better place. I especially admired him for his love for his family and his friends. I will always remember Tom with a smile on my face and gratitude in my heart for having shared in his life."

"My condolences go out to the family and friends of Thomas.  From reading about him I know he is missed and loved by many.  No matter what, it can truly be said that death is an enemy and soon it will be brought to nothing (1Cor. 15:26).  I have found much comfort in the Bibles promise of a resurrection hope of our loved ones at John 5:28, 29 and hope you will too.  Death was never a part of Gods original purpose, in fact he yearns to soon bring an end to it and the suffering it causes your family and friends.  Revelation 21:4 states: "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away."  I did not know Thomas, but I read his obituary and I hope these scriptures will help to bring some comfort knowing that others care.  If you would like to learn more about the Bibles promises and the hope it brings, please feel free to contact me."
