FACT THAT MOST OF YOU DONT KNOW: Tony & I met waaay before I knew he was dating Marcie. I think we knew each other BEFORE he met Marcie.......at the nursing home ......I was charge nurse on days-I knew every patient & their visitors. Tony asked for the nurse-me-introduced himself & told me he was there to see a vet buddy, Bill". He also thanked me for taking care of him. As I was professionally acknowledging the compliment, Tony came around nsg station & hugged me really tight. Looked me in the eyes & said, "God bless you for what you do here". We were bonded from then on- Christian-Hippie Budies!!! He came to see Bill at least every other day, & then Bill took a turn & went downhill. He passed quietly at the hospital. I missed seeing Tony. His smile, long grey pony tail & his positive energy. ..........then 1 day-all of a sudden-out of the blue-(SWEAR THIS IS TRUE)- Marcie walks in to the nursing home beaming & glowing & showing me a ring on her weddin finger....and TONY was behind her.......my mouth dropped open....and I cried a little cause soooo happy......he didnt know she was my friend, & she didnt know he knew me from visiting Bill!!!! He has met up with Bill again & is dancing with Angels now. This story is my fav special sweet memory of my Christian-Hippie-Brother. Love you Tony. ✌💜😚
