Palo Alto, California

Thomas ("Tommy") Byron Kramer, adored son of Albert and Jacquie Kramer of Palo Alto, younger brother of Tricia, Robi and Danny Kramer, passed away in his sleep in the early morning hours of Saturday, Dec. 8, 2012.

Tommy was born on Dec. 16, 1990. He grew up in Palo Alto, and was a proud member of the Paly Vikings football team. Tommy was especially talented at drawing and block printing and was majoring in Art at Chico State University. Loved by all who knew him, his tragic death leaves a deeply bereaved circle of family, friends and neighbors.

What a tragic loss. My heart goes out to all the Kramers, facing the future without Tommy. He was the kid with the most beautiful smile in the universe. Wanted you all to know the McCabes are thinking of you. Much love from Carol and Thomas

I only would hear about Tommy-mostly from Al -whose eyes would light up at his mention... I did meet him once as a darling little boy. The loss of such a beautiful young man is just heartbreaking. I'm sorry I didn't know about his memorial at Paly...Bless all the Kramers. Love, Linda

I will always remember Tommy as a smart, curious and funny child. I'm sorry I did not know him as the young man. My deepest condolences to Jacque and family.

This was a boy who truly had a twinkle in his eye. What a happy little guy I knew - gentle, and sensitive. He had this giggle that there was no way of stopping once it got going. Al and Jacquie my heart aches for you.

Dear Jacquie and Al, We have been shocked by the dreadful news. We remember Tommy very well, open and enthusiastic, during the week he spent in France with Louis. We share your grief and condole. All the best. Valerie and family

Tommy is one of our closest and most cherished friends. He has one of the biggest most kind hearts I have ever known and I will miss him each and every day. I hope my son has learned from Tommy what it means to be a kind soul. I will carry him in my heart for the rest of my life and I am so very sorry that Jacquie and Kramer have this long journey to take. We are all here to support you and love you through this. Love you love you love you.
