  1. I have read about Tommy for so many years most of this from bop sources obviously and I’m appalled by this. Those two passages from Oscar Wilde and Charles Dickens were quite inspiring and very poignant I will be sending Tommy a letter and will look at sending gifts or financial help

    • John, I will forward your message to Tom (by snail mail), and I’m sure he will respond. Please do write directly to him and, if you can, send him financial help. But please don’t send him any other kind of gift without first checking with him or BOP–they have very strict ideas about what is acceptable for inmates (as just one example, Tom cannot receive a book from an individual–only from a bookstore and then only if approved in advance by BOP). Anyway, thanks for visiting the site and please help spread the word about Tom’s plight. Webmaster.

  2. Where can we buy some of Tommy’s artwork?

  3. Is Karen still alive?

  4. How do I email TOMMY? Im his cousin’s wife. I’ve known Tommy since he was about 12 and his family.

  5. My mother Karen is Tommy’s cousin. Please let him know I’m sending a letter very soon!
