Lorraine, I lost a very good friend as you did, and my deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family and grand-children. As you know, Tony and I go way back from being friends when we were 16 in Whitby and attending all the Oshawa General games together. We will all miss him at Beaver Park. My deepest condolences and may he rest in peace.

PS-this is for Tony- I love you and will miss you very much, your buddy, Paul. GO GENS GO!!

Lorraine, I may be a bit late - just heard the news from my brother John. I am so sorry to hear that Uncle Toni is gone....as my godfather he had to be my favourite uncle didn't he?
