We lived in the same apartment complex. I lived above him and his friends. Antonio would find punching the porch’s support beam as a form of his exercise routine. We would be outside in the hot sun enjoying the weather while he listened to his favorite songs. He was really nice to me and I appreciate that about him. He cared a lot about people and their wellbeing , even ones he barely knew. I’m thankful to have met him. God really does only pick the best to come home to him. We will miss you greatly, Antonio.

There are nothing but good things to say about Antonio. He has been a part of the Margate baseball family for such a long time. Have to admit didn’t like seeing him in a Douglas uniform though Lol. We really miss you. I know you will look over your family. God has a new angel.

Antonio,
You meant so much to so many of us; a humble son, a solid friend, a role model brother, a beloved nephew, a fun cousin. But above all, we cherished your kind, loving spirit and your ability to live an exemplary, dignified life. In many ways you reminded me of my own nephew with your playful energy, your ease, smile and candor. You have certainly Paved the way for not only your little brothers but your friends as well.

May you rest in eternal peace surrounded by all that is beautiful and celestial and may God hold you in the palm of his hands.

God Bless your beautiful family who I know are really struggling with your loss. May they find peace and strength in Mary’s benevolent light and grace.

Love, Sandy and Jamie Cabral-Barbera
