Loved & Missed by Many.... The Story of TJ Sommers

TJ was a fun loving guy, who loved life, fast cars and the game of softball. 

In spite of one careless choice that cost him 3 months in jail, he overcame the humiliation of it and chose to let it make him a better person. 

TJ lost his life while playing softball, at the age of 29. Being an organ donor, he gave the gift of life to 4 people. 

His gift became a source of healing to his grieving family as  they met and became friends with 3 of his recipients. 

This is a story that will inspire you, showing clearly who helped TJ and his family walk this incredible journey we call life. 

Written by his Mom, Mary Kathryn Sommers, Forever 29 walks you side-by-side through the life of TJ Sommers.
