I bowled in a league with Mr. Tony a few years back and he always had a smile and a couple of laughs in conversation with him. Later I would ask about him to Mr. Charlie in a bowling league in Bossier and also saw a few times at the bowling alley. Same thing a "big grin" and smile. I just wish I had been able to talk and see him as I always felt better about life after talking to him. God bless his family and they have to have a million good memories of their life with Mr. Tony. I appreciate my encounters with him and am a better person by knowing him. Ronnie Miller

Mr. Tony and I used to drive together on field trips for Claiborne Magnet when my daughter attended there. He had a wonderful spirit and I knew he loved The Lord. We had a chance to share several testimonies. I will truly miss him. GREAT MAN! GOD bless you all. BE ENCOURAGED!!!!
