Tony, this is not how our awesome sunny day and pool party-cookout with family and friends was suppose to end. We are all devastated and don’t know what to do or understand how this bizarre accident occurred. I’m not sure why God felt he needed you so soon but he knows all. As always you were living life to the fullest. We were already talking about and planning our annual snow tubing weekend in January. We were reminiscing about our past two weekends at the lake. We still have a couple of more picnics left and our annual trip to Gerstle’s; how in the world are we suppose to carry on without you. You were full of life, energy and the best friend me and Dave could ever ask for. You have no idea how this has affected us , I’ve cried everyday and relive the day/night over and over in my head trying to understand what went wrong. We will take care of Jackie and Joey for you. Please watch over all of us and let’s us know how we are doing. Thank you for being my friend , Rest In Peace.

Jackie, Joey, Anthony, Audrey, Christopher, Gregory, Jeffrey and your extended families - My heart aches beyond belief. We are here to help and support you in every way we can. We will be sure to speak of Tony often as we will never forget him. We will get through this together one step at a time. My heartfelt codoloences to each and everyone one of you.

Jackie and Joey, I love you very much as if you are my own sister and nephew. We are family and are bonded even closer now. Love you always!

I’d like to think My uncle Anthony and I had a very special kind of bond, when he would visit we would talk for hours, everyone always wondered how I got so much gossip and info out of him, but we just connected. We would sit at the dining room table at my grandmas house on holidays and just give each other this look and know what the other was thinking., I always looked at Anthony with such high respect. He always came through when anyone in my family needed a helping hand. He was always calling or texting me on the side to plan things for his visits to Georgia. I always liked to joke with him that him and my father were like old women everytime they talked on the phone. I will miss giving him hell about his love for the cowboys. I will miss hearing his laugh when he’s roasting on my dad or another one of his brothers, I will just miss him so much, but I take comfort in the many amazing memories I have with and because of him. Thank you to all for the prayers for our family.
