    I have made some friends on this forum and some people have helped me out with pinball issues so I just wanted to let you guys know that my son Tommy passed away the other night at the age of 24. He was my best friend for many years of his life but we had some issues over the last few years because he had a drug problem and it was hard for me to accept. He had been clean for the last 5 months and we spent the day together a few days ago. He hugged me at the end of the day and said I love you dad. I want to get a Tommy pinball somewhere down the road as a tribute to him in my bar. I was a big Who fan at the time he was born and he is named after Tommy the pinball wizard. Please let me know if anybody has one near my area in NJ and maybe we could work a trade for my monopoly or junkyard or I could purchase one and sell one of my machines as times are tough right now with the expenses of his funeral. In the meantime, please say a prayer for me and my family. Thank you. don

    don was one of the first guys i "spoke" with when getting back into this hobby. we had the same machine and similar issues. (wpt). I cant say how helpful he was and even went so far as to send me several items so I could get mine up and running. never asked for a thing for any of the stuff. tells you the kind of guy he is. a sad day for sure.

    Sorry for your loss. There are enough people on this forum that maybe someone can make up a cool plaque for your Tommy pinball machine when you get it honoring your son.

    #32 6 years ago

    Sorry Don,
    I can't imagine losing one of my kids, and I can't imagine how my Dad would handle losing one of his. When I saw the Thread title I was hoping this was an overly dramatic post about the loss of a TOMMY machine, but unfortunately not the case.

    All the best to you and yours.

    I can't even imagine what it must be like to lose a child. The mere thought of it is just heartbreaking.

    Best wishes, sir, and I hope you and yours find the strength needed to carry on after your tremendous loss.
