September 04, 2017 "Today I was reading Life's Reflections written by Tommy Hawkins and Petting the beast that is never tame.

Mr. Hawkins spoke at Rotary of Sierra Madre several years ago. I treasure his book of poetry for the people because it is so.

I have been a fan of Mr. Hawkins my adult life when I began listening to KABC. He was always an inspiration, great humor and much admired.

It was great to see him at the Dodger games, too. He was friendly and made himself available to the crowd.

I feel as though he was always a part of my life and his influence has made a difference in mine." - Peggy Beauregard (Sierra Madre, CA)
