T,its been 8 long, empty months since I lost you. I couldn't find the strength when I first lost you, to enter anything like this, T. You were the answer to my prayer...my blessing from God. I may have only had you for 2.5 short years (shouldve asked for lots of time:)), but they were and are some of the most beautiful memories and times of life. I will forever miss your smile, your slant of eyes when I would give you a crazy answer, your soft touch and strong hugs, your gift to me of the one thing that not many people ever find: acceptane for who I am, you saw past all my flaws, and loved me anyway. You were not just a husband. You were a wonderful confidant, friend, lover, father, husband, music wonder, brainiac, my partner for Jeopardy every day, and just plain GOOD. I miss you, T Flemming. My journey since your death, has been a lonely road of many things. In my heart, I know that you are definitely one of the "good" ones for God. Rest in peace, my "sweet T". Loving you with a head full of great memories, and a heart that will know I was once loved by you, just for me...just because .....Your wife, Liz.

I became friends with T in 1979 when he showed me how to play my first guitar chords;we were rockin'guitar buddies ever since.I got him to play a concert with our band 'Freedom'at the Brady High School auditorium in 1981.That's probably the coolest memory I have of him out of so many.The last time I saw him was at my Mom's house in Voca.He,myself,and Lee Williams played guitar all afternoon.Unfortunately,we kind of drifted apart when I moved to Arlington in 1986 like a lot of friends do when we go our own ways in life.I've always regretted not keeping in touch with you brother all these years even though I always thought about you.Now I'm starting to realize just how much I really miss you.T,you were one of the coolest and funnest guys I knew and I'll never forget you.Rest In Peace,brother!

I first remember T.s named being mentioned to me in about 1979 as the "best guitarist from Brady Texas".

I had the privilege of jamming with him later as T. myself, Gene Duncan, and Deryl Shields used to hang together back in the day (1979-1980) when he was a lifeguard at the Brady Municipal Swimming Pool and it was during that period that we had a rock band together for a brief time "Freedom". We experienced the joy of playing an assembly at the Brady High School to the delight of about 550 screaming and cheering kids in April of 1980. He came to my house many times and hung out or practiced/jammed.

The last time I saw T. was before I moved to California in 1993. I moved back to Texas in 2005 but regrettably was unable to connect with him again.

One notable memory is that anytime T. picked up a guitar, one of the first things that would pop was a song by Sugarloaf called "Don't call us child we'll call you"

My appreciation to T. for the memories, and my deepest condolences to his family.

Liz,
My prayers continue to be with you and your family as you face these difficult days ahead of you. I'm truly sorry I didn't get to know him longer. He certainly sounded like an awesome person. May God go with you today and days to come. May you always cherish your memories of your short time together.
Love,
Patty

I met T when he was a lifeguard at the Brady swimming pool. He was a great influence on the younger generation. He was always looking out for them. I crossed paths with him again when I became a director for the Brady Chamber of Commerce. He will forever be missed as one of the judges of the Goat Cook-off. Rest in peace, T......
