    Tom Morrison __ Life isn't the same without him in this world. We made a pact as teenagers to 'come through' to each other no matter where we were or what was going on -- we made a Houdini "pact" -- & when Tom passed away, I didn't get a phone call, I got an other worldly message -- an eery voice saying "You now have Permission to Remember Tom Morrison". Next, the words "Call Mary, Call Mary, Call Mary" which was very strange, as I'd just spoken to Mary a couple weeks earlier. Tom came through, alright. I got the news from Mary -- but first -- Tom kept his word and I got the News from him. God Bless Tom. He was my everything in many ways. The kindest Soul you all have ever met. He was also a fantastic Violinist, and a great SINGER too -- we played in Orchestras together. His first love was wailing on the Grand Piano most of all. He wrote music like stream of consciousness. NONE of it was ever recorded. It just poured out of him like Gold. We were bandmates in a number of Group endeavors. Wrote songs together. What a great human being. Forever in my Heart. Thank you Tom.

    What can I say? I miss my talented, wise, silly brother every day. Still have a hard time keeping the tears at bay when I hear someone playing the piano. Miss you Tom.

    I have many great memories of Tom. First, his incredible mastery of the piano. I remember hearing the sounds of Beethovan coming up through the floor-boards. It was always a comfort to know Tom was in his apartment creating beautiful music. I remember Tom practicing Tai Chi - so fluid and graceful - very focused and in tune with his physical, mental, and emotional being. But mostly what I remember about Tom is his kindness, his gentle nature, and his many comforting words of wisdom. He was a great person and I am richer for having known him.

    I too saw Tom in Sorcerer's Apprentice. I remember him nailing the keyboards from Roundabout. They were awesome. And of course, years later I got the chance to spend some time with him when he was in Moving Parts. I think we can all agree he was a tremendously nice human being. Some months ago I had a dream with Tom in it. We were in a large bowl-shaped lecture hall. The subject was music. He was engaged and asking questions. I thought it was odd that he was there but I didn't want to say anything as he might disappear. He smiled a knowing, Cheshire smile at me as if to say he understood. I hope there's some truth in the dream. So long Tom.

    I first met Tom back when he was a member of Movong Parts, saw him most recently with The Squirrels. I never really got to know him well, but I do know he was approachable, humble, and a very nice guy. RIP Tom!

    I remember seeing Tom play with Socerer's Aprentice and playing the solo from "Time of the Season" perfectly. Needless to say I was very impressed. I also saw him many times with Moving Parts and was always struck by what a generous ensemble player he was. He is one to be missed.

    I have so many fond memories of Tom, but one of my favorites is being on stage with Tom when in the middle of one of his keyboard solos he broke into the fanfare from "The Lonely Bull". Before and after Moving Parts, Tom was in some great bands - Sorcerer's Apprentice, Madshadows and The Squirrels to name a few. I hope you use this guestbook and post a memory, anecdote or just a nice thought for or about Tom.
