Tony was my uncle. I had not seen him since one of dad (Howard's) reunions several years ago but I remember him fondly. He was a nice man and was always kind to me and my sister Katie, and my brothers Bob and Jim. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family at this very sad time. Remember him with love.

God Bless him for serving our country.

Dear Rita, I was saddened to hear Tony passed. My heart goes out to you and your beautiful family. I remember meeting Tony at least two times at the old Norwest Christmas parties years ago and you both were so happy together. I pray that you and your family find peace and comfort during these times. Time will heal all wounds. Much love, Cora Miller.
