Tony lives on in so many ways... I was one of the lucky OHA employees who was blessed to know him. Before he passed he made sure he made arrangements for all of us at the cancer center to have one last "party" to remember him and to welcome spring. I received one of the cyclamen plants that was part of this celebration. I have NO green thumb whatsoever, however this plant has had a least one if not numerous blooms on it every single day. It sits on my kitchen counter next to the coffee pot and each morning it is a constant daily reminder to me of Tony, the love that he showed, and the example that he set of how to live! Thank you Tony :)
To my dear husband, six months have passed since you left us. I think of you every day. I see your face everywhere, in our beautiful garden, the stone walls that you built, all the trees that you planted. You left me with a beautiful place to live, a place that you loved. You fought so hard to beat a disease that had no mercy and you left us way to soon. I miss your smile, I miss your frowns , I miss "got a minute", I miss our 5 o'clock cocktails on the patio, but I mostly miss your companionship. I know you are here with me in spirit and I will hold onto that until we are together again. Rest In peace. Love you to the moon and back.
Dear Linda,Chris, and Jen, A life well lived. I can't think of more appropriate words to describe a man who lived,loved and left this world leaving those of us that had the privilege of knowing him so incredibly sad. Tony will be missed. His thoughtfulness, generosity, love of his family and country, his appreciation of nature and for the kindness that showed in everything he did are the great attributes that we all should aspire to imitate .

To Linda and Family; Our deepest condolences go out to you in this hour of sorrow. Brandon and I have known Tony since 1998, while working at Dow Chemical with the old Gulf States Crew. Over the years we have gotten to know Tony very well, helping him with all of his electrical projects. When going to Tony's, it wasn't just going to an electrical job, it was going for a visit. Tony would always greet us with compassion, insist he make us sandwiches and enjoy our "visit". He will be forever missed by us, as he was always a friend and a great person. With deepest sympathy, Nick and Brandon Macko.
