Tom Mallon-McCorgray – Saturday, January 11, 2014 POSTING
(b. 12/24/56; d.1/9/14)
Friends – Tom Mallon-McCorgray died on Thursday night. Too raw to express what my beloved, my heart and the father of my children meant to us and me. But, please know that the outpouring of love and over-the-top generosity astounded us from the start. “Thanks” are never going to be enough – but that’s how we feel about all of your love and support: thankful. And, grateful.
To all of Tom’s friends and followers and family, a memorial service is likely to be in mid-February. Will send out communications then.
Hold all those you love closely and kiss them with the fullness of love.
Dear Tom Mallon-McCorgray Supports:Share This Update!
At the urging of friends, I post this update... I have been Tom's life partner for just over 20 years. And for those of you who have screamed, laughed, cried, chuckled, giggled, sobbed or run out of the studio with him behind the mixer, I salute you. One might think this is a small club, but for a guy who's recorded thousands of songs, albums and CDs, there's a lot of us. (A lot of that is in our basement!)
That maddening, pushy recording musical genius is who I think of when I think of Tom. Some people have told me he's lovable -- I know there's a few out there that would disagree with that. Whatever your opinion of his unique personality, I think we can all agree that he has never been a push over and is as stubborn as anyone could ever imagine to be.
I hoped that out of sheer dint of determination he could scare that Glio into submission. But, it seems, he met something more stubborn.
On December 10th, we had to admit him into hospice care as he's lost control of his right side and it's no longer safe to be at home without professional help.
If you feel you'd like to hellp with that expense, please know any donation will go to the cost of his residency. If you want to write him a note I can read to him, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for the fine considerations and thoughts you have sent to our family. We wish you health and love.
Three days after TomFest -- today, March 6, 2013 -- Tom Mallon had a second surgery on his brain. We are super happy to report that he was talking and nibbling on ice chips and asking if there has been any new pictures posted since Sunday.Share This Update!
IT IS A GOOD DAY TO BE ALIVE!
