Dear Louis, Larry and family,
I was so sorry to hear about your dad. I will always remember Uncle Tony for his calm and soft spoken demeanor. Never seemed to get rattled by things. (not an easy feat in this crazy family sometimes) Thinking of you all and hoping your memories last a lifetime and help you though your loss....... RIP Uncle Tony
Love you,
Lisa and Tom
