He was surrounded by Linn, the love of his life, and by family and friends. I'm not making distinctions, because we were one and the same. The staff of the hospice brought chairs for musicians and there were songs and tunes. He slipped away during "Whiskey Before Breakfast", and was very peaceful. I've heard people sometimes pick their moments. I don't think that, if he HAD to go, Tom could have picked a better one.

Being there brought home the fact that Tom has been a major part of local music history, and many lives, and was so, so loved.
Correction: the tune was "Farewell to Whiskey".

I never met the man but I did hear lots about him, all good. It was about four years back that Tom began to face serious hardships that affected his mobility and music, but the combination of his courage and Linn's support created a beautiful portrait of what it means to have lived well and died well.

Bruce M

PS Rumanci told me about meeting Tom once for a short time--ten/fifteen minutes--and they talked about English concertinas. She says the man knew his stuff and parenthetically he mentioned what a bugger they are to play at times. Doesn't get much better than that if you ask me. Rest well, Tom.

Thank you, Maggie, for starting this. Tom wrote obits for altogether too many of our friends, but I guess I'll have to write his. But not tonight.

Thank you all so much for the outpouring of condolences, great memories, tributes, hugs, love and comfort both here at Mudcat and at Facebook. The hardest thing for me right now is knowing that I can't read all of these posts to Tom.

I'm reading here and at Facebook right now, but I won't be posting much for a little while. Maybe tomorrow. I'm...I'm...I don't know what I am. I'm tired, relieved, teary, laughing at good memories, talking to the cats, making lists, but most of all, grateful that Tom had a gentle, beautiful death surrounded by friends and music. I am so, so grateful for our many friends.

I need some quiet time tonight...to read, absorb, let the tears wash some of the cares and worries out of my system...

I've never been a widow before. And they forgot to give me a script... But I have a wealth of friends.

Linn
