If you would like to do so, donations may be made in Tommy's name to the following: Casey House 6001 Muncaster Mill Road Rockville MD 20855 240-631-6800 http://www.montgomeryhospice.org/patients/caseyhouse.php (Or, if preferred, please support to your favorite charity.) A large portion of T's remains are planned to be returned to the environment in the form of a reef-ball (large halves of hollow spheres, crafted from concrete and micro fibers that help organisms attach to the surface) that will aide the Chesapeake Bay of Maryland and become a fish habitat. This is Tommy's way of giving back to our precious planet.

I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glint on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you wake in the morning hush, I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circling flight, I am the soft starlight at night. Do not stand at my grave and weep; I am not there; I do not sleep. Do not stand at my grave and cry I am not there, I did not die." -Author unknown
