Tony was such a wonderful person inside & out. I’ll never forget all the laughs or the time he dressed up in a Frosty the Snowman suit for the babies! He opened my eyes to so much music & of course Pittsburg Football! I had never seen anyone so excited for a Super Bowl. Then there was the famous Christmas breakfast and so many other memories. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers! Love you all!
