Tony was a joy to be around. My husband Hermon and I enjoyed square dancing with Tony and Janet years ago. I will be praying for Janet with an understanding heart. My Hermon went home to be with the Lord nine years ago next month. I still miss him but the memories are more precious as time goes by. Take care and God bless!
