It’s been a few months without Tom Spurgeon and the reality isn’t any easier. But for friends who are in New York, a memorial will be held tomorrow at the Society of Illustrators. It’s being organized by Tom’s great friend Gil Roth, and he asks that you RSVP here.

“I had an amazing life, and my love for my family is unsurpassed, followed nearly as much as the love for my closest friends. Be kind to yourselves, and live in laughter as much as possible. I love you. Thanks for everything.”
–Tom Spurgeon

Please join us on the evening of Friday, January 24, 2020, at the Society of Illustrators (128 E. 63rd St., New York, NY), to celebrate the life of Tom Spurgeon. We invite all who knew, loved, and admired Tom to join us for this public memorial, in lieu of a funeral service.

An audio recording of the Columbus memorial for Tom can be listened to here. And to honor TOm’s memory, you can make a donation to the Billy Ireland in support of Cartoon Crossroads Columbus.

Sadly, I won’t be able to attend, but I know the many people who knew and loved Tom will be there to make it an amazing evening.
