Tom Weigel was a true poet. He was essentially his own creation, poet, artist, originator. His passing is a great loss for poetry in NYC, the Hudson Valley, and the world.
I was fortunate to have Tom support my local poetry readings by coming to hear me read. For that I am forever grateful.

Tom touched my life with his passion for poetry. He was the first poet in New London who believed in my work. Without his encouragement, I wouldn’t be writing now.
My deepest condolences to your loss and may Tom Rest In Peace.

Tom was loved by many. He had a kind heart and a determined spirit! He gave freely of himself to the New London School or Poetry and to his community! He promoted artists and the arts all his life and his star will shine on !

Tom was an authentic poet; a real supporter of the cause and mission of poetry:
to celebrate the human condition, its glory, originality, passions, and regrets.
Tom would come to support my readings and always had high praise for me whenever we spoke. I remain inspired by Tom Weigel, and am pleased to learn more of such an original soul. His passing is a great loss to Poetry and Art, in old NYC, the Hudson Valley and the world. -Robert Milby
