A ceremony celebrating the life of Dr. Thomas was held on March 24, 2003. It was attended by over 100 colleagues, friends and family members.

Speakers included William B. Carey, MD, Sidney Thomas, his brother, and his three sons. Musical interludes were played by violinist and developmental pediatrician, Yeou-Cheng Ma. A reception followed.
