To my lovely friend, Tina, I am so deeply saddened Tony has left us! I am so very happy that we met before the Covid crisis began and we had the wonderful espresso coffee together at your home. Tony was simply a gentleman above gentleman. Such a sweet voice and such a giving way and a pleasure to be with at all times. I can never forget him ever. May God help you through this most difficult time and give you the strength to forge ahead. Much love and many hugs to you and your entire beautiful family! Mirella Pace D’Antonio ❤️❤️
