Dear Julie, Kelly and Seth, As you may expect we are all devastated and saddened to hear the news of Thom's passing. There is much I will miss about his connections with UUSG and the gifts he shared with us so generously. His sermons were consistently thoughtful and filled with message, and just always seemed to touch the right chord. His singing was beautiful though we didn't hear it nearly enough. And, although it has been a while since I took part in the non-violent communications discussions Thom led, I think of them a lot in these times. It seemed so perfect that he chose to go into training for UU ministry. I can't imagine a better match for him. I hope he felt the same. I am holding you in my thoughts. Trish

I didn't know him for long, but he gave me encouragement and tools to continue to volunteer as a Junior High religious educator. He was always willing to offer new ideas so engage the youth and helped everyone that he could. He will be missed.
