Wow! So, so sorry, Debbie and family! We came to know you and Tony from Frisch's in Anderson. What a wonderful couple! We have thought of you all often and want you to know we still love all of you! Tony was such a nice, caring and loving guy! We had some good times, didn't we? For years! Miss you all! He and you were and still are a loving and wonderful part of our lives! God Bless you and your kids and grandkids! Will be praying for comfort and peace. Have been since we heard of his passing. Know that Tony is at peace and would want you to be. Time heals. Take care of yourself until you see him again. Again, Gary and I are so sorry! All our love to you and family! If we can do anything to help, please let us know! In our thoughts, prayers and hearts.

I love that you and I have loving children and grandchildren! They honor you sweetheart! I love that you taught me to learn to love camping. I always loved to go fishing! You didn't want to touch those fish you caught! At least not without gloves! LOL! We both learned to love each other's passions, (Or, at least tolerate) each other's passions. and you even learned to take a fish off the hook bare handed!,Funny, you're the one who taught me the best way to remove a hook from a catfish so we could release him. Canoeing camping, fishing, target shooting, spending time together, hanging with family, or just doing nothing together... I miss you so much Tony!!!. You've been my best friend for most of my life. Longer than I had my parents, I lost them at 29, I hope to give you a good send-off. I hope you're in a wonderful place, waiting for the rest of us, enjoying those that you've lost and missed. I hope you're having a good time, just waiting for those of us who will join you in are own time. I miss you baby. :-('re loving wife

I remember moving down to Bloomington. And my Uncle Tony took me caving for the first time. It was amazing. Nothing like seeing 1st hand nature that normally goes 1000s of years without being seen. One of the many things he lived to teach all of us kids about was nature. I am sure going to miss him but I know this was the best for him. With all my love

Brandon Sloan and family.
