Condolence & Memory Journal

A deep loss of a great person. Tom impressed with his passion for literature, and his commitment to social change through action. Although he loved discussion and debate, he went well beyond talk in acting on his beliefs, a rare quality that too few of us can claim. My heart goes out to Anne, Alexa, Manya and Justine, who must be feeling this deep absence of such an admirable man.

My deepest condolences go out to Tom's family and all those who loved him. He was a genuinely nice person, and a pleasure to work with.

I was one of his students in the early 90's. He had a profound effect on me. It wasn't because of his knowledge or his politics, but because of the genuine respect and kindness he showed me. I won't forget him.
