Uncle Bubba, there's not a day that goes by where I don't think of you. You have touched so many lives. I wish you were still here, so we can continue to make memories. You were my best friend and my birthday buddy. Every year it gets harder, just knowing that I'll never see you again at any of the family events, breaks my heart because nothing's the same without you. "That one day in early February, you passed away in your sleep, I been crying when I think about it, I miss your smile, I miss your laugh, and now I live without it." R.I.P. Uncle Bubba, just know that I will always love and miss you. Thank you for being such an amazing uncle.

My heart is heavy with sadness when I found out about Anton's passing. I have such great memories of going to school with Anton in New Fairfield. I smile when I think of him as a backup dancer for our "Madonna act" in the Senior Variety show and seems like just yesterday we were in High School together. I will miss his smile and contagious laugh. He had such a warm heart. My thoughts and prayers are with your entire family. Rest in peace Anton.

Anton, reconnecting with you these last few years was special. Your sincerity, perseverance, and courage were contagious. I will never forget you, all that you stood for, all that you were...a kind and funny and loving human being who lived by the golden love your neighbor as yourself. I know you are now an angel in heaven. Peace and light are yours now forever, and may your family have the comfort and joy of knowing that. My heart is with you, until we meet again, Lynne Adduci

Sorry I never got to hoist a brew with you. In my mind you will always be 15, the age we were when I last saw you. Rest well, Anton.
