Forever In Our Hearts

This online memorial was created in loving memory of Thomas (Tommy) Sorci, whose life story is told throughout this memorial website. Please sign Thomas (Tommy)'s guest book and let us know you came to visit. We will remember Thomas  (Tommy)  forever.

Difficult days, but not forgotten  

Your love in our hearts

And no love is ever lost

Joy, laughter, life and heart

An inspiration to us all

Blue eyes not lost to death

A smile that never fades

But born into kinder spirit, Amaya and Kalyn

Once you were daddy's angels

Now you are theirs

Soul to light, light to star, a beam

In forever sky

Shine on and shine and we see

Your star in dark night

And it shines, smiles, and gazes

A blue hue of hope, love, and life

Love, Mom, Dad, Derek

Elizabeth,Amaya and Kalyn




Last night the Sacramento Skateboard community lost a dear friend . If you ever skated a park, ledge, bump, manual pad, stairset, anything in the Sac area ,you more than likely came across Tom.  He probably helped you if you fell, or gaveyou words of encouragement if you were bummin on a trick.  Tom was that kinda person. Everytime I saw Tom he had a smile on his face and a skateboard in his hand.  He really encompassed everything that is GOOD about skateboarding. Apart from being a really good human being, Tom Co-Owned Nine 16 Skateshop in Sacramento.  Tom, you will be missed, but surely not forgotten.

Oh that I had wings like a dove! For then would I flyaway and be at rest. Pslam 55:6

Please don't tell me you know how I feel ,

 Unless you have lost your child too,

Please don't tell me my broken heart will heal,

Because that is just not true,

Please don't tell me my son is in a better place, 

Though it is true, I want him here with me, 

Don't tell me someday I'll hear his voice, see his face, 

Beyond today I cannot see,

Don't tell me it is time to move on,

Because I cannot,

Don't tell me to face the fact he is gone, 

Because denial is something I can't stop,

Don't tell me to be thankful for the time I had, 

Because I wanted more,

Don't tell me when I am my old self you will be glad, 

 I'll never be as I was before,

What you can tell me is you will be here for me,

That you will listen when I talk of my child,

You can share with me my precious memories,

You can even cry with me for a while,

And please don't hesitate to say his name,

Because it is something I long to hear everyday,

Friend please realize that I can never be the same,

But if you stand by me, you may like the new person

I become someday.


I close my eyes,

Think maybe if I pray hard enough..

Everything will be okay,

I'll open my eyes,

And you will be smiling down on me,

Maybe if I wish hard enough...

The last two years will just disappear,

And you will be here.

Laughing with me just like before,

Everything like its always been,

Not all this pain.

Tom was known to many as a great friend and skate partner...but in my heart he will always be known as the most loving father and husband ever...



Tom Of Nine 16 Skate Team 1507

Monday evening Tom was killed by a hit and run driver while riding his bike on a busy street. He had just purchased the bike just 4 days before. My son and he were friends since age 11 and he was pivotal in helping Bob open the Nine 16 skate shop. He will be missed. He left behind his twin girls aged 3 . This picture was taken and posted about 3 weeks ago. I'm glad I had one last opportunity for a good shot of Tom.
