The years I have known you Tommy. We had so much fun. You were always finding exciting, new fun things to do and you always made me laugh and see the fun side of life. You lived for a short time on this earth, but never did you spend a day that wasn't full of fun.

To the family, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

Tommy, you will be missed.


From one of the "terrible T-bird" members.

Love always

I only met Tommy once or twice when he got roped into helping us with the Historic Tour of Dallas back in 1998. The night before the tour, four of us were working into the early hours of the morning and he was a total hoot. I remember that night as a night of total laughter and was very impressed that he jumped in to help our mutual friend, Ellen Walker, as if it were his own project. I'm sorry to hear about this vital man's passing.

:( How very sad. I was friends with his niece Jody in high school and he was always so funny and sweet the few times I was ever around him. I know Jody and the whole Aiken family will deeply miss him. Jody, if you or any of your family members are reading this - you are in my thoughts and prayers!

Tommy was truly a beautiful person, he always had a smile & hug for me anytime I ran into him while I was out & about. I absolutely loved going by to see him from time to time, even if I just dropped in without calling, he always greeted me the same a big smile & hug too. He was just so much fun to spend time with!!!! I will miss you my friend...


May God Bless his Family & be with them.
