Tony and I have so many precious memories of your dad. His laugh and smile when we talked of old times made our visits great. His life was full of love from his family and everyone who knew him. Rest In Peace Tony.

I am so grateful I had a lovely visit last summer with Tony when I last visited Carrie and Paul. It warmed my heart to spend that time with him. He sure did ADORE his daughters!! Hearing him speak of them made my heart smile! One of my forever memories is the wonderful time Tony had at Carrie and Paul’s wedding many moons ago. I clearly remember him laughing, dancing and singing that evening. If I close my eyes, I can still see his joyful face!! Sending my deepest sympathies to his beloved family. Thinking of you all.

You were there when I came into this world. You were a part of my entire life. I missed you so long ago and now I will miss you forever, the last of my family, my link to my past; so many memories, so many laughs. Rest in peace, in the arms of those you loved and who loved you. Go with pride and joy. . . a life well lived. I loved you, but you knew that.
