I have known Big Tony for 3yrs and they have been awesome.
My heart goes out to Barry and his daughter, they were family to Tony and he was so close to that little girl and even Barry. I know this will be something that will be extremely hard for Barry to get over. I know it will be something very hard for the Duit family to get over too. We have taken such a hit from this. I know Big Tony wouldnt want us to dwell on this, he would be thinking production,production,production....
I will miss seeing him smiling and driving around in his tahoe harrassing everyone and having a good time doing it.
He will be missed so much.
Good luck and God bless.

Ms. Rose
Your son was a wonderful person. He always had a smile. I am blessed that he was my friend. We spent alot of time together over the years talking and laughing. He was someone you could count on to be there to help however he could. My thoughts are with you and your family. Tony will be missed.
