Tom Thurber Has Peaceful Death Jan. 13, 2007

Tom Thurber's daughter Tianna and his friend Timmy Swearingen sent these notes:

Hello everyone.  I just wanted to let all of you know that my Dad passed yesterday around 1:15 p.m.  He died peacefully in his sleep.  The cause is unknown.  I went to visit him on Thursday and it was very sad.  Physically he seemed fine.  He was very dillusional and restless. It's a relief to know that he is finally at peace.  What a great complicated man.  There will be no funeral.  I donated his body to science. (Duke University Medical Center)  When I receive his ashes I will think long and hard where to scatter them.  He loved so many different places. Hopefully he can help others with his condition.  I think he would have been okay with this.  With Love To All,  Tiana Thurber
