Thomas Mikal Ford was 52-years-old. We didn't receive enough of him on the series after the sitcom was cancelled, prematurely and now he has passed away earlier than expected. The most painful goodbyes are the ones that are never said and never explained. Gone, but not forgotten. We'll miss you Tommy! Thank you for bringing smiles to our faces, no matter what we were experiencing.
