Eleven years ago today my cousin Tommy Ashton was murdered in the North Tower of the World Trade Center.
Here’s where he lives on in the 9/11 Memorial Guide.
But here’s where Tommy really lives on: In the tireless efforts of his sisters Colleen and Mary, who have run the Tommy Ashton 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament for the past seven years, raising over $250,000 to “[provide] charitable donations in the name of Thomas Ashton to institutions, organizations, worthy causes and individuals, including contributions to philanthropic endeavors and to community enhancing activities.”
We miss you all the time, Tommy.
Not just on September 11.
