Correction on my previous post: I misspelled the name of the fantastic soloist for “Go Tell It on the Mountain”- I sincerely apologize- His correct name is Henry Wiens- so sorry!
Joyful loving memories of Tom playing at church, camping, and being with our family.
Tom was an incredibly creative & talented individual; his love for his Lord Jesus, his precious wife and three dear children, and ALL God’s children shone through his short but powerful life! His original Gospel rendition of “Go Tell It on the Mountain” featuring Henry Wein soloist & Park Avenue Choir is still the first Christmas Carol I listen to every year! This year I started early by playing it the other day for my 4-year-old grandson & he LOVED it! If this music was/is ever written down, it needs to be published & shared!
Tom was an amazing and gifted man who brought people together through his gift of music, a great Dad, a living husband and I was honored to be his friend.
Tom was an amazing communicator as his mind, heart and soul were expressed through his words and wonderful music. I loved how he encouraged all of our contributions, bringing music together and doing it in a joyful way.
Tom taught me how to enjoy music, no matter the genre. Al and I loved Tom and his family so much. Tears still come when I think of him.
Tom Fitch taught me how to love people unconditionally and how precious time is with family. He allowed God to work through him to achieve God’s divine plan. Always in my heart. Eddie J Jacobs (Cape Town South Africa )
So this is the 24th Memorial Day that Tom has missed celebrating on earth. That said, he is not to be pitied. He is living in the reality of one of his favorite stomping gospel songs: “When all God’s children get together…We’re going to have a TIME! We’re going have a Time!! We’re going to have a Time”!!! This truth remains on his cemetery marker: “He found love and it was good”. Tom, thanks for spreading and sharing that love. God is good. Knowing you was an incredible gift. You were a candle that burned short but bright. I treasure your memory…Henry
