Anthony Vincent Codianni
July 25, 2018
To the family of the late Tony Codianni
It is hard to put into words how sad I am for you and me to talk of Tony's death. In our 50 plus years of friendship, we have communicated often, sometimes not so often, but always with a sincere caring about each other.
I was Tony's closest male friend in high school; we shared dates, school activities and days after school with his parents on Lake Street and on Long Island. His Mom taught me how to open raw clams and eat them from the shell; which no Jewish boy knew how to do.
I last saw Tony last year when my wife and I visited him in Newport Beach. There was a great sweet shop that he insisted we visit before we headed back to LA.
I tried to call him on his last birthday( we are only one month apart in age) but got no response nor did my texts get a response. I did not know how ill he really was, and I am sorry that I did not comfort him at the end.
