Sorry to reach you with such sad news after all these months of inactivity. Just got off the phone with Tom's husband, Steve, minutes ago. Tom is now in an induced coma after several heart attacks and circulatory complications caused by a common hernia surgery. The surgery has apparently been performed poorly and everything went south from there. Even though we all wish to stay positive, chances are Tom is not coming home. Tom's has been an amazing mentor and probably the most kind, passionate and talented magician I ever know.
