It was sad to hear of your fathers passing. I knew him well as did my family,my father was his friend and he brought love and joy to all of us. My father passed three yrs ago and I still have the picture he made for my mom and him. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

The ability to make people laugh is a beautiful gift. Although there"is a time to weep and a time to laugh" who does not prefer to laugh ? (Ecclesiastes 3:4) Sad to say,we live in a world that primarily gives us reason to weep.That's why your Dad will be sorely missed !
September 27, 2011
Sorry to hear about Mr.Wilson's passing, He gave alot of his talent and kindness to the world, and because of him doing so he will live on in the memories and hearts of all who knew and loved him,But especially He will live on through his talent of cartoon sharing of Ziggy :0) , Strawberry Shortcake and the lovable carebears, May God Bless Your family during these trying times.Rest In Peace Mr. Wilson

To The Wilson Family:

So sorry to hear of the loss of such a great writer. I enjoyed Ziggy and all his fun quirks. Your dad just knew how to capture the moment in Ziggy.

He will be greatly missed and I know you have many fun memories that will last you a lifetime.

May the God of comfort be with you during your time of sadness, Psalms 147:3.

September 23, 2011
l loved the Ziggy character so much I named my Doberman after him back in 1978.

I cut out a comic strip and posted in it my cube at work where Ziggy was looking out his window one morning and the sun was shining and birds were flying and he says 'a whole new day to screw up in'---

September 22, 2011
my love of 22 years drove in the rain on a motorcycle 25 miles(because he had no car at the time) to put a ziggy poster outside my apartment complex, so I would see it as I drove to work the next day..... it said I love you and rainy days are for love too.....it is memorable to this day ...thank you Mr. Wilson ....rest happily
September 22, 2011
May you be comforted by God's tender mercies during this time of saddness.
September 22, 2011
im so sorry to hear of your loss i use to like ziggy my deapist condolances to you liz tom and charlie
September 22, 2011
Tom, I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. For the amount of time we hung out in High School, I never had the opportunity to meet your father. But based on Ziggy and knowing you, I know the 'apple' didn't fall far from the tree! My sympathies to you and your family.
September 22, 2011
As a teacher in Bethel Park, PA, I decorated my entire classroom walls with posters of "Ziggy". Our classroom also had a guinea pig named "Ziggy". Both the posters and the class pet brought light-hearted, but a positive focus to learning. Mr. Wilson and his creation (Ziggy) will forever be in my heart. See you in heaven, Tom.
September 22, 2011
Lizz, Tom, Charlie: My thoughts and prayers are with in your time of sorrow.
September 22, 2011
You might say Tom saved my life... I don't remember the exact quote, but one of Ziggy's contemplations was something like, "It doesn't matter if you win or lose, but whether you manage to survive."
It struck me at a time in my life when I was working very hard... and I took this as a sign that I needed balance. It made me a better person. I wish I had known he lived in Cincinnati, I would have looked him up and thanked him. What a blessing he has been, I'm sure, to so many people. I'm so sorry for our loss.
September 22, 2011
My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time. I too grew up with fond memories of Ziggy. Im in my forties now and still have some of those special cards.

My son used to enjoy Ziggy when he was growing up, thanks
September 22, 2011
My deepest sympathies for Carol, Ava and Julie. You are in the hearts of many across the country at this time. One of my "best" memories with my Dad was our "Ziggy" connection. He would include a "Ziggy" cartoon in his letters he sent when I was in college. Our phone conversations would always end with the "Ziggy" of the day. What a great way to end our talks with a belly laugh!!

God bless,
September 22, 2011
RIP and thanks for all the laughter. Meg Martin (Syracuse, NY)

My love and prayers go out to the Wilson family. Tom Wilson and Ziggy have given me great joy over the years being a huge fan since the 80's! My fourth grade classroom is full of Ziggy books, posters, dolls, etc and every year I send off another class loving Ziggy! I am so saddened by this news but so grateful Tom Jr. has/can carry on in Tom Sr.'s legacy. God bless you through this difficult time. Thank you for the smiles and laughs! Rest in peace, Tom!
September 22, 2011
My condolences to the family of Tom Wilson Sr.
September 21, 2011
The loss of Tom Wilson is akin to the loss of Charles Shultz...two great men and two great cartoonists. Heaven is a better place with them, and we are a lesser place without them.
September 21, 2011
God be with you and your family. Ziggy you'll never be forgotten, always in our hearts
September 21, 2011
I still love Ziggy!! He was with me growing up and something to enjoy and have fun with. The memories are always with me. May God Bless his family and know that he will be forever remembered.

My condolences to the Wilson Family. Thank you Mr. Wilson for giving us Ziggy!
I always have the Ziggy daily calendar (It's a rip-off) and everyday he makes me laugh or smile, or remember that things could always be worse, so to be grateful for what you have. My deepest sympathy for the family.
September 21, 2011
we will miss you & Ziggy, God Bless.
September 21, 2011
Ziggy was one of my favorites growing up, I used to love to draw him also. Thanks for him!!!
September 21, 2011
Tom helped me get my start as a photographer back in 1972 when he visited Rochester Institute of Technology where I was a photography student. He bought a photograph from me for his new product line, Soft Touch greeting cards at American Greetings. After graduation in 1973, I worked as a photographer in the Soft Touch Department at American Greetings under Tom. A wonderful man to work for as I remember, always very patient and thoughtful to his employees. After leaving AG, I would occasionaly see him sitting at Cleveland Hopkins Airport while we were waiting to fly somewhere. We would chat for a good while, and I remember he was always so kind and wanted to know what I was doing and how I was doing. I lost track of Tom in the 90's and about 6-7 years ago I learned he was down in Cincinnati near Tom Jr. I will always cherish the two Ziggy's that I bought at the annual AG artist fair at 78th. Street Studios back in 1975. Tom sure knew how to make Ziggy fit our everyday lives in his chucles and grins. Tom was sure a GIFT to our creative world and his legacy as an artist will surely live on and be sadly missed. My condolences to all his family.
September 21, 2011
Thank you for all the smiles you put on everyones face when we read Ziggy. You will be deeply missed but, we will have Ziggy to remind us of you. May you rest in peace. Our condolences and prayers to your family.
September 21, 2011
Ziggy is a part of our family for many years. Deepest sympathies to your family in this time of great sorrow. Your husband and father has left a deep and lasting legacy that has touched all our hearts. My mother has alzheimers, but she knows Ziggy and I put him in her daily book to read and enjoy and smile. May it give you comfort to know this. God bless you. Catherine Robbins, Akron, OHIO

Sometimes, reading a "Ziggy" comic is like gazing into a mirror! My condolences to the family, friends, and fellow fans of Tom Wilson, Sr....the man who created a genuine icon of our society.
September 21, 2011
I just retired after teaching second grade for more than 25 years. One of my most favorite memories is showing my kids the Ziggy's Gift video every year. They always loved it and when I left school in June I made sure I passed it on into the good hands of my next door neighbor teacher telling her how special it was and of the sweet message it has for children...so different from what they usually watch. I'm so happy to know that it's out on dvd. I'll be sure to get it for my grandaughters. Your husband and father brought such joy to so many people. May he rest in peace.
September 21, 2011
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
September 20, 2011

Ziggy has been with me everyday since I put him in a frame that I keep in the bathroom where he is looking at his image and it says Hey!!You forgot to floss! My sympathy to the family. He will be missed, but will live on in the memories of many.
September 20, 2011
Won't you come home Bill Bailey was my favorite strip that Tom WIlson wrote. Ziggy asked, Did Bill Bailey come home yet? I laughed so hard. My boyfriend, now husband, bought me a Ziggy salt and pepper shaker. It is a Cleveland thing. Thanks Ziggy for the memories.
September 20, 2011
We enjoyed reading "Ziggy"everyday-was never sure what to expect

September 20, 2011
Tom, how very well I remember your blonde shaggy hair and creative and individualistic personality when sitting in our 3rd grade class. I express my sincere sympathy on your loss. I know your dad was very proud of you. I ran into him at an estate sale while he was still in Lakewood. He shared with pride that you had joined the "Ziggy" adventure with him. You are still one of my most memorable and favorite students. You march to your own tune. I have memories I could share with you. If so inclined, do contact me.
With sympathy,

September 20, 2011
Thank you for the smiles you have given me each day. I hope you are in heaven making everyone laugh. To your family I send my deepest heartfelt sympathy.
September 20, 2011
I could choose to identify with Ziggie when life was a little rough... Years ago I would occasionally stop by the card rack to go through my ‘smiles time’ with the Ziggies. My wife Lucinda and I often chose to have a warmness of heart and Ziggie was often a catalist for light humor during those daily trials of life. I sometimes would settled on one of the cards in the rack, then a red rose from the flower case in the grocery store. Later, at home, Ziggie allowed us to have that simple and bright message to lighten in the grind of life. For us, Ziggie was more than just a cartoon...his simple and accepting spirit was sometimes a patch on the jeans of our tattered plans and dreams. Thank you Tom and family.

Ziggy is the first thing I looked at when I opened my newspaper. I would cut out the cartoons and put them on my refrigerator so my husband would be sure and see them. So many of them related to our family. Thanks so much for sharing them with all of us.

I worked with Tom at American Greetings back in the 80's. He was very generous, sensitive and fun to be around. He told had told me once he had based hard lucked Ziggy on himself (even looked a little like him to me). He must have had a great outlook on life because he was always up beat and happy when I saw him. Keep smiling Tom!

Welcome Home
written by L J Coon

Welcome home my friend, from so much suffering
Welcome home my friend, step out of the pain
It’s ok to cry, we've all seen tears before
Its ok my friend welcome home

Talk of love one’s lost, so many years ago
And how you hurt inside, till no more tears would flow
Let the healing start, you can't look back no more
Its ok my friend welcome home

Welcome home, from so much suffering
Welcome home, step out of the pain
It’s ok to cry, we've all seen tears before
Its ok my friend, welcome home

Could I somehow sooth, your pain that lives within
If you just let go, the healing will begin
Holding on so tight, letting go is half the test
Its ok my friend welcome home

Welcome home, from so much suffering
Welcome home, step out of the pain
It’s ok to cry, we've all seen tears before
Its ok my friend, welcome home

It’s ok my friend…the pain won't hurt, no more ...

To the Wilson family,
Thanks for sharing such an amazing talent with the world. Please know that you will be in my prayers for your loss.
September 20, 2011
Dear Family,
Years ago, I worked with Tom at American Greetings. I purchased two Ziggy calendars for my sons for Christmas and Tom so graciously autographed both of them. They are still in our "favorite" collections. He truly was a man of talent, and yet so kind and generous to everyone he met. May God hold you all in the palm of His hands.
September 20, 2011
Rest in Peace Mr. Wilson.
September 20, 2011
My sympathies go out to your family. Your father was a brilliant man. My favorite was him looking towards the sky saying "Er, in case you haven't noticed the meek are still getting creamed down here". I still have it somewhere.
September 20, 2011
Tom Wilson has brought joy to my life everyday by creating Ziggy.
I really, really feel that I have lost a cherished friend.
Tom, you have made it to the mountain of wisdom, and God lovingly accepts you into his kingdom.
Ziggy will forever live in the capable hands of Tom Jr.

One of my favorite Ziggy strips was the job interview. The boss says "You have no skills, no training or particular aptitude.... I think I may have an opening for you as a consultant" Hehehehehe!! Priceless! Peace and blessings be with you Tom. Justin (Boston Ma.)

Oh, how I love Ziggy!! He is the cutest and sweetest character and has always touched my heart. Always makes me smile and sometimes tear up. I'm so sorry that Tom is gone but always keep Ziggy alive. He holds a very dear place in my heart!!

What a wonderful legacy you left us. Ziggy interrupted so many of my ho-hum, gloomy days with spontaneous bursts of sunshine. I ruined more than one newly purchased top with spews of morning coffee. Thanks! : )

My Prayers that God will Bless You with His LOVE & COMFORT. Along with the Holy Spirit's help to bring to Memory ALL the Wonderful Memories of Your Dad & Friend, to Help You: Laugh, Share, Pass On, Cry & Heal! I really Enjoyed a Cartoon on New Years back in 09 I think, anyway Ziggy is talking w/ God & asking Him Not to have so much confidence in Ziggy that year. Because God only puts on You, what You can Bare! That was a Rocky year for me & I was brought to Laughter & Realize...it would be OK w/ God! Love & Hugs to You & Yours.

I love Ziggy, I can't remember when I started reading the strip. My daughter called her brother (my son) Ziggy.

I am sorry for you loss. Thanks
September 19, 2011
Rest in peace.
September 19, 2011
Wow, who doesn't love Ziggy. Thanks Tom, rest in peace
September 19, 2011
I had many a chuckle over the years with your comic strip. R.I.P.
September 19, 2011
I have loved Ziggy since I was a teen! I somehow related to someone who never came in first. When I became an English teacher, I used Ziggy in my classroom. One of my classes bequeathed me Ziggy and William Shakespeare to sit forever in the back of my classroom. I went on to be a school counselor and Ziggy was part of the office decor. I hope someone continues to keep Ziggy alive for future generations.
September 19, 2011
May the memories held deep within your heart, help soothe your spirit, at this difficult time. He will live on in the hearts of everyone who loved him. I appreciated seeing and reading the Ziggy cartoon, each and everyday, in our daily newspaper for years!
September 19, 2011
To the families your Father was a great man I enjoyed the Ziggy strip. May he reast in peace with the Lord.
September 19, 2011
Please accept my most sincere sympathy on your loss, and I would like to thank you for sharing your husband and father with us. His work kept me going many days.

Thanks for the joy that you shared through your characters. YOU MADE THE WORLD A GREATER PLACE!

Mr Wilson was an inspiration for my generation. His gentle way of helping overcome adversity in such a lighthearted character helped many grow into responsible adults. He will be missed but his legacy will continue. Thank you.
