I will miss the birthday call I received from Anthony every year. We would talk for at least an hour. The conversation was always filled with so much respect and him reminding me over and over again how special my family was and how proud of us her was. The call came every year...without fail. Though our interaction was infrequent, he was always so kind to me. The best kind of uncle....

Much love,
