I'm very sorry to share the news that our dear Tommy Rall, died tonight of congestive heart failure around 5:00pm Pacific Time, in Santa Monica, California.

But I want to share with folks here a rather magical story of Tommy's passing. A hospice nurse was by Tommy's bedside and found a box that held the cards and letters that had been sent to him in the last few weeks. She spent the afternoon reading each one to him, and when she finished reading the last one - he peacefully stopped breathing and passed away. She was very moved by the experience and wanted to share that story with the family.

A private service will be held in the future. In the meantime, we have Tommy's dancing and singing and beautiful spirit to remember. Thank you for helping to honor that spirit in these memories.

We'll miss you Tommy: our love and laughter follow you.
