Dearest Rosemary, Jessica and family~ the service was wonderful and I'm sure Tony was smiling on you all at what a touching dedication that was to him. He knows the ultimate love of our Lord now. We rejoice for him and remind ourselves that this life is fleeting and our ultimate reward is to be present with the Lord in glory!!

I know that I wasn't able to spend much time with you Cousin, but I will never forget the fun weekend and your generous hospitality that You and Cousin Rosemary offered to myself and my Father (Duane Edmond) on our cross country trip. I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to meet you. I will remember your smile always.

Italy was a great three years of wonderful experiences, like burning the biscuits because our neighbors horses got loose and we helped round them up and I, Doe, rode one back as Tony diligently drove several yards behind.
