My deepest condolences to all who knew and loved Tommy, a person with a big heart and an even bigger smile.
Tommy and I were classmate and roommates at Northwest Airlines training. I remember the long stressful nights we would stay up late studying. Tommy would always find ways to make me laugh and lighten the mood.
Tommy provided a lot of stability and wisdom to his younger classmates, and always brought a calming feeling to our days.
Thank you Tommy for all the memories and fun time. For your smile and laughter. And, mostly, thank you for being my friend.

I'm so sorry to hear about the passing of Tommie. We met back in DTW with Northwest Airlines in the late 90's. He was always a kind and caring person. May God surround his family with comfort and peace.
