i was so saddened to hear about Tom. I knew him here and in real life but we had drifted apart. A secondlife friend told me about him today. I signed his guest book for the funeral home. The world has lost a good man and a true talent. You will be missed Tom.

I am saddened to hear about
Tom.

I can only hope that his involvement in our online communities over the last few years had enriched his life in some way.  I know that he has enriched our lives.

Thank you Paul for letting us know.
Tom was a artist, a creator, and most of all a friend.
We will all miss him.

I only knew him through a couple of forums, but he would help anyone
whenever he could & that shows what kind of man he was.
Sadly missed.

I first met Tom here in this Zabaware Forum in 2005, and after a few months he also joined the Virtual Humans Forum, where he was one of the most active contributors.

I never met him personally, but we exchanged ideas on these forums and in private mails so many times that I can really say that today I've lost one of the best friends I've got in my life.

He has passed away but his creations and ideas will stay with us forever.

If someone has info about his domain http://www.charctercreationsanddesignworks.us/ please let me know. I would be honoured to acquire his domain and host his site on my server forever.

A real shame as Tom was one of the good guys!
His presence, art and humor will be missed!

Rest in peace.
In the world of AI it's the thought that counts!

When reading testimonials, we just can be sure that the end of his poor life was great in SL.

Thanks to all people who will keep his work alive, or at least archived.

Sad day...

OMG! :(

Was only speakig to him a few days. He seemed so full of adventure and was looking towards the future after his tragic loss.

I'm lost for words, a great friend has been taken from us.

Hope he has at last found some peace.
