Ann - I am sending my thoughts to you at this time. I will miss Tony at all of the dances. I know all of us will. He always asked if I needed a partner. He was such a thoughtful person. I enjoyed his little reflections between tips. He told me that he liked to travel and he really enjoyed going to the square dance festivals where people had lots of energy. I will remember those happy times.

Dear Ann-Whenever I saw either of you at any dance event it made me so happy. You are both such wonderful, friendly people and it was always a joy to be with either of you. Tony was my dance partner many times and what a treat it was to dance with or talk with him. When I was a newbie he was always so encouraging and helpful. We will miss him so much and want you to know that we are sending loving and healing energy your way. Much affection, Debbie and Terry
