There is no ending to Anthony. First he is my brother. He and I had a special bond. I know Anthony had a special bond with everyone he would meet. His huge heart, his infectious smile, he was very engaging because he just loved.
I am so lucky that you are my brother Anthony & you have always been in my heart, and I feel you stronger in Spirit.
Bob and I love you so much and You to Bob will always be his "Tony-bag-o-doughnuts", and I will always be your Josey Wales.
GOD BLESS YOU. We know you are in Jesus arms.
Your sister #1, JOSIE. & my loving husband Bob. (Spadaro)
God bless us everyone!

This was read to Anthony , 2 days before he passed.
Dear Uncle Tony,
I want to tell you that you are an inspiration to me; always have been.
From my earliest memories of you as 'Iron Man', to our incredible journey across the country, to every moment I've spent with you since.
I love you, and I admire you and the way you have lived your life.
If you leave us, today, tomorrow, next week or next year, whenever ... please know that it is only temporary, as we all must leave here eventually; and we will see each other again in the Hereafter, in the Light.
I love you, Uncle Tony. With deepest respect and gratitude for knowing you.
Until next time,
your nephew and friend,
Dante

I grew up next door to Anthony and his parents; they were always all so nice to my sister, Marsi, and I. I remember swimming in their pool on many summer days, helping Anthony set up his trains (and getting to watch them run around the house), playing Nintendo (he always had great games), and even getting to go with Anthony to Charger games (he was a season ticket holder for many years). Anthony was a real kid at heart - that's for sure. I feel like, if I we were to explain Anthony to someone that didn't know him, that's where I'd start, by saying he's a lifelong kid at heart. I'll always remember Anthony for his kindness, his laugh and his love of having fun...he was a really nice guy and good human being - I'll always think of him whenever I see an LGB train because I know he'd love it as much (or more) as I do.

We were so sad to hear of Tony’s passing. I knew him for over 50 years and he was always a friend who gave support , guidance , & love. He endured so much yet he did not complain & with his loving wife , Ruth , they shared a love & life that many will never know. I am blessed & thankful that he crossed my life and I was more than fortunate to call him friend... Rest easy now & enjoy your peace with the Lord... I will miss you but I will not forget you..

I'm deeply saddened by Tony's passing. He was a good friend while we were at Trenton State College. Always happy , easy going and funny. I recall many fun times we enjoyed as fraternity members and can picture his smiling face easily today. I'm sad but Tony is with his Maker and at peace. Ruth, may God give you comfort at this troubling time.

Anthony stepped into eternity, released from his body that kept him..he was met by all his loved ones who went on before him, he is walking streets of gold and eating from the tree of life, he is more alive than ever...but the most glorious thing is that he sees his Savior, looking into His wonderful face , and all the questions are answered and all regret is wasted away...oh how wonderful!!! Anthony has embarked on an everlasting journey in the realms of glory.....
