One night I dreamed a dream. As I was walking along the beach with my Lord. Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand, One belonging to me and one to my Lord.
After the last scene of my life flashed before me, I looked back at the footprints in the sand. I noticed that at many times along the path of my life, especially at the very lowest and saddest times, there was only one set of footprints.
This really troubled me, so I asked the Lord about it. "Lord, you said once I decided to follow you, You'd walk with me all the way. But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of my life, there was only one set of footprints. I don't understand why, when I needed You the most, You would leave me."
He whispered, "My precious child, I love you and will never leave you Never, ever, during your trials and testings. When you saw only one set of footprints, It was then that I carried you."

Tony was my manager,
When at 129, I worked midnights I have great memories of him always in a positive joking man. He was a great heart and wonderful man. I WILL MISS HIM GREATLY. He touched my soul. May he always know that he touched so many. And my life would never be the same had I never met him. Bless you Tony you will always be remembered. God speed.

I graduated from Cactus High School with Tony. We were both on the gymnastics team our senior year (1981-82). The gymnasts tumbled during the varsity football games. Tony and I had choreographed a routine to perform during one game, me on the left, him on the right. We mirrored each other's moves. The final move was to slide into splits. To the horror of our coach, Mrs. Ruhlman, we walked back to the bench, mirroring each other in a different way. Tony was holding his right hamstring, me holding my left.
