I am grateful to Tony for giving my mom happiness and love during the last sixteen years of her life and for providing us with fond memories during that time. It was so enjoyable to sit in their beautiful sun room and enjoy food, drink and animated conversation. Tony made the boisterous, fun parties in his back yard, exceptional by asking each of us to share a memory of the guest of honor. Tony, Connie and I had a blast when we all went to Las Vegas together. We shall miss him.

To Tony's kids, their spouses, and extended family,

Losing a parent is a taxing experience for all involved. We wish you
the best possible path through your grieving time. Thank you for
sharing your dad with my mom. He was good to her, always striving to spoil her, and he gave her comfort and peace. You all showed us a warm welcome through the festive parties that we shared at your dad's place.
Sharon and Dennis
