Prayers for Tony’s children and Tony’s siblings . I know your heart is breaking . I wish their were words to take away your sadness and loneliness .
You made the best hot wings this side of heaven Granny loved them .
Give her a hug , she will glad to see you .
Your daughters will never forget the time you spent with them watching the Titans . That was a good father to do that .
I know you will be missed when the new grand baby comes .
They will be thinking of you , you will not be forgotten .
Enjoy your walk with Jesus
