Tony and I worked together during the time I worked for the Division of Rehabilitation Services from August,1960 until February, 1998. His service to disabled Tennesseans was significant and he had the respect of all who knew him.

I am sincerely sorry for your loss. Mrs. Bible, my hope and prayer for you and your family is that you soon find peace and comfort.

Sincerely,
Jack M. Van Hooser
