We did not really know Anthony(Pizza as we know him) personally, but we did know what an Awesome Kind Gentle Soul he was. He was like a big Brother to our son Justin. Justin was extremely fond of Pizza and all the great things they did together. Pizza took Justin under his Wings and taught him so much about fixing cars, scratching tickets and eating out LOL. Justin always talked very highly of his ( BUDDY) and entire family. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. May PIZZA rest in peace.
