  1. Tommy was very special to me. I have known him since my first day of working at the John H. Northington Workshop in 1985. He came often to visit me during the day and was particularly excited to find out about my children and my visits at Nags Head, NC.He was a joy and full of smiles. Please accept my condolences. I am sure he will be estactic to see his family again when he arrives in heaven.

  2. Condolences to the Northington Family

    It was sad to hear of Tommy’s death. Growing up I spent many days at the Northington household and knew him well. Thinking back on those times and the challenges Tommy faced I remember most the love in which he was surrounded. Buddy, Patsy, Johnny and many others did everything they could to give him his best possible life. The sacrifices they made showed their unconditional love for him. I expect Tommy has now rejoined his family in a much more peaceful place.
