The Mayor
« on: October 31, 2011, 08:14:49 am »

It is with a heavy heart that I relay some bad news. One of our treasured Zendrummers, Tom Roady (The Mayor) has been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and his prognosis is not good. I had the pleasure of meeting him and learned a lot from him. I ask for your thoughts and prayers for our dear friend during these times, for him and his family. God bless you Tom.

I will be calling him this week.  I am sad to hear that my friend is not well.  He has shown me so many things and helped me advance to where I am on my Zendrum now.  Thank you Tom, you and Mel are in my prayers.

I am deeply saddened by this news. I have only met Tom "virtually", but was instantly struck by his generosity of spirit. Tom, please know that you are in our thoughts and we wish you strength in this battle.

I never personally met Tom, but have chatted with him online here, and visited his website. He is an amazing person and musician. My thoughts and prayers go out to  him and his family.

Heavy news. Like many here I have only met Tom virtually but between our discussions, plus seeing some of his youtubes I get some sense of his generosity of spirit and love of what he does.

My best wishes go out to him and his family.

Good news about Tom, he went to see the doctor and the doc seems to think that Tom's condition is improving, that is GREAT news.  Things seem to be looking up.
