Anthony was a sweet patient man. I loved him very much. He was there for my mother during hurricane Katrina and my grandmother when she was dying. He helped take care of my 5 year old daughter Ava after my father died. She loved him so much!! We will miss you and all the long talks I shared with you about how my mother was. Our last phone call was very pleasent and I know you came to grips and were happy. You will be truly missed, I don't have anyone to talk to about my mother anymore that will understand. He always spoke so highly of his daughter and grandchildren and his son as well. Ava and I love you dearly!!!
