Tam was a very nice young man. He was very polite and always said "Hello" every time he saw me in the hallways at Duke. I reviewed several protocols with Tam as part of our work together and he was extremely inquisitive and knowledgeable. He had a real passion for science, research, and safety.
I really don't think I have met anyone who was as kind and sincere. He consoled me after two recent losses I suffered. I am deeply sorrowed by his loss.
He will definitely be missed by all of us here. My condolences to the family.

I actually don’t know what to say...I only know how much Tam will be missed! He was the sweetest person with such a kind heart. I still remember; While I was pregnant, he was always willing to help, offered assistance in every step I made and was always concered about my wellbeing. Whenever I felt down or tired, he always found a way to spark a conversation to keep me going and made me feel better. It breaks my heart that we lost such a wonderful person and I hope that he knew how much I cared about him. I wish I had just one more chance to tell him how much he meant to me.
Please accept my deepest and most heartfelt condolences.
