I am filled with such grief and sorrow to hear what has happened to this very young man. To weep and mourn is all I can do. For his life was short. He didn't have a chance to give to this world the part of him that no one could know but Jesus. And Tom Green certainly knew that Timothy was much more than what the public eye had seen on that day when Tom took his last breath. My memories of Tom Green were always filled with such 'awe', to watch a man love as Jesus loved. To see the gleam in his eyes when the lives he ministered to with Gods' strength and love, living out as Gods' hands and feet didn't seem so bad after all. I remember the two , Tom and Timmy seemed to be the best of friends. One would have even tend to believe that the two were actually Dad & Son. Hearing about Timmy's death hurt badly, so very deep. Even though I did not know him as well as my children or even those that I once "fellowshiped", with in the Great Congregation. I had a love for the child that only Jesus could have. As for Tom. He really grew on my family and I. We couldn't help but leave our hearts open to him and his ministry as well as laughter that just seemed to follow Tom around.
Thank you both Tom and Timmy for the time you did share with us.

I did not know Tom Green personally he lived a few blocks from our house. Tom would walk by our house on warm days and always stop to look at our flowers garden. He was very loved in our little community.It is so very sad what happen that fatal day. They now sleep in their resting places and wait for the judgement of God. (1-Thess 4:16-17)

There was more than meets the eye. Tom green was a weirdo. I used to hang out there when I was a run away and he would try to get me to sleep in his bed. Timmy didn't just kill him for no reason
