Charles and Family; I am very sorry to read about Tommy’s passing. You guys were great classmates and really quite talented on guitars. I hope that the memories of all the good times will carry your family through this very tough time in all of your lives. May God Bless you and your extended family.

As the previous Step-Daughter of Thomas, I’m deeply saddened for the family including my mother Cynthia Hammock whom he was previously married to and with whom he welcomed a Daughter; Ebony Durham (who lives in California), along with his two Granddaughters; Kiarra Haynes and Alisha Durham-Dill, two Grandsons; Ali Dill and Yusuf Dill and a Granddaughter; Aliyrah Durham-Franklin.
I pray he rests in peace and that his entire family stays blessed.

As the ex-wife of Thomas E. Durham and the mother of his only child, Ebony M. Durham, I am sending my prayers and condolences to the Durham family. His four grandchildren and only great granddaughter along with his step-daughter, Camela Wimbley-Loggins are deeply saddened by his passing. Although they didn’t physically have contact with Thomas they spoke often with him via phone calls. Thomas, may you finally have peace.
