I really dont know where to start with this. Anthony and I have alot of memories together. But we wasnt just friends. We was more like brother and sister. Cause yip I was the one person that he would tell ya if you dont like it theirs the door lol. Cause I was his sister not his girlfriend. And we traveled to many rodeos and him and Elsworth spent many nights at my house just to have something to do cause my house was the hangout for everyone. Especially on New Years. And we could spend days or weeks without talking but when we met back up we picked up where we left off. I didnt run and hang around with many but he was one of them. And now hes gone to be our Rodeo Angel in the Sky. And hes back with his horse Blue Eyes and riding tall again. That horse was his other bestfriend. Anthony Bubba your gonna be missed by us all. Hope you Rip and Fly High.

Prayers for all the family and friends of Anthony. I worked with him several years at the vet clinic and have known him for several years now. He was always the same where ever you saw him and always greeted people with that smile and a wave.
