Sylvia...you and Tony were our very first neighbors when we arrived in Athens in 1984 and made us feel so welcome. Our families share some wonderful memories with you, and our two granddaughters still speak fondly of you both. All of us wish you solace from oll those memories that you and Tony created....that, truly, is immortality. Chuck would also include his condolences.

Tony always was quick to extend a friendly handshake, and "talk a bit of banking and Bulldogs". A ready smile and a kind word was his trademark. He will be missed.

Sylvia,
Tony and I grew up and went to school together at Sargent. We also went to
Sargent Baptist Church as young people. Tony and Miss Lois were wonderful friends. I also worked at Bank of Coweta in Newnan (a Synovus bank) and talked to Tony some through the years at the bank. I remember meeting you several times and want to extend my sincere sympathy and prayers to you. May God grant you strength, comfort and peace in the days to come.

So sorry to hear of Tony's passing. A favorite conversation that we had at the bank was about the trip to Africa a few years back. He told me all about how you both walked with the lions. I loved hearing about that trip - glad that y'all got to travel to great places. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless.
