Kay, I just wanted you and your family to know that you are all in my prayers. I miss getting to see you, Kay. I would also like to say especially to Brandon how sorry I am that I didn't really get to work with him after I was hired with NEREG Library System. Hopefully Brandon is enjoying his new venture as much as I am enjoying mine.

Tony and I graduated from BHS in '66, and I can see from the pictures that he never lost that winning smile. He is a good man who lived a good life. I'm so sorry for your loss.

Tony epitomized a well-lived life. He was solid in his relationships, enterprising, funny, and devout in his beliefs. To say that someone can be counted on when the going gets rough is high praise; Tony was definitely one who could be counted on in the good times and bad. What a wonderful man! Kay, you and your family continue to be in my thoughts, on my heart, and definitely in my prayers.
