    My sincere condolences to Tommy’s family. I first met her in Kansas City when I was a freshman in college. She was a huge inspiration for me!

    I started seeing Tommie in the summer of 1986 when I was in college and continued well into my adulthood. Tommie literally saved my life. She gave me tools to move forward and so many clever funny bon mots that I still think of and use to this day. Tommie was lovely and I am grateful for her kindness and understanding and smarts. She was a shining light and is dearly remembered.

    I’ll always remember Tommie’s infinite perception, wisdom and common sense as I completed a rotation with her at Munroe Meyer Rehabilitation Institute. She made a lasting positive impression on me and I think of her and her teachings frequently to this day. Her guidance was direct and compassionate. My sincere sympathies to the family and colleagues of Tommie. I will never forget her; how grateful I am to have known her.
