Margo, I want you to know how extremely sorry and saddened I was to learn of Tony's death. Although it seems impossible to speak of any meaningful consolation in the face of such a painful loss, I pray for comfort and strength for you, your family and friends, and Tony's friends during this most difficult and grievous time. The beginning and end of life take us to our most emotional time.

Please accept my sincere condolences. Please call me when you feel up to it.

Much love, Sandy Dickerson Landis

Margot and family,

I’m so sorry my dear old friend to see that Tony has passed away. I loved what a wonderful husband he was to you, and it was my pleasure to have met him at Giovannis over the years that I tended bar there.

I think of you often Margot, and I will keep you and your family in my prayers during the difficult days ahead.

You have my sincerest sympathy.

Love always,

Susy Kulikowski
