Dear Rossini family,
I was the activity coordinator at Prairie Lodge where Tony was living. I want to let you know that Tony was loved and cared for in a way we knew he cared for others. I'm sorry I didn't' get to say goodbye, as I was recovering from surgery. I loved Tony's smile, laugh, and the way his face lit up when his family or others he recognized would come in the room. Although he wasn't able to speak his feelings, he showed his delight when you brought him a cheeseburger and fries, and when he got his hugs. I'll never forget his laugh, and it was a joy to be around him. Your family is wonderful, and I wish I could have one just like yours. I wrote some other words at the Star Tribune, so please look at that too. I know Tony would be so proud of his boys, and you all have done a great job through all this. You've had a rough year, and I will never forget all of you. I will continue to pray for you all too, I have a prayer list on my fridge. Please call if you ever need anything. My love, prayers and blessings to you all. Love, Kori Williams

Our thoughts and PRAYERS go out for Tony's boys, wife, & all of his family, friends, neighbors.... I will always remember his warm, friendly smiling way .... Bless all! Sincerely, Todd, Trish, Taylor, & Toby Curtiss

Tony and I were class of 74 at cretin. My thoughts and prayers are for Claire, Joe and Martha.
My most sincere sympathies to Tony's family. Tony was a kind and generous man –one who treated his clients with great compassion. It was a pleasure to have known him.
I was at Cretin with Tony. So sad to hear he has passed. Claire, Joe and Martha have my thoughts and prayers.
I remember the kindness and smiles of both Tony and his sister Clare from the old North Dale playground days. I am sorry and sad to hear of Tony's passing. I am not at all surprised to read about the wonderful memories he has left for those he touched!
So sad to hear of Tony's passing. As a classmate at Cretin, I remember him as always smiling and a freindly person.You and your family will be in my prayers Tony.
I was privileged to work as Tony's paralegal, having worked for Ray before him. Tony had a way with people, patience with the most difficult clients, and kindness for everyone. Please extend my sincere sympathy to the entire family.
We are thinking of Tony and his wonderful family.
Prayers always... And Gods Peace amid all that life may throw our way.

So sad for all of us. The world lost a very bright light.
To the nicest , smartest guy I knew. He would never let you win a game of anything, very competitive and fun loving. His kids Nick and Thomas are raised by the best parents; Tony and my sister Diane.
Tony's life was written and lived the way God wanted it to be for him. Even now Tony is in His hands.
Credit to Tony's loving family for a loving, sensitive, fuller than life obituary!

What a great mental painting of Tony. Thoughts and prayers to your whole family.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of Tony's family. Tony was an inspiration for me in high school. I played 4 years of football and hockey with him. In those years I learned to never quit and to always go hard. Tony's energy carried over to all his teammates and took us all to levels we did not think possible. His spirited attitude
will always be remembered and appreciated. A team mate, a leader and an inspiration. " Ratso" forever. Thanks Tony.
Very sorry to hear of Tony's passing.
God be with you Tony.
Tim Bockert, Classmate from Maternity of Mary School.

I was the legal assistant at Rossini & Associates, P.A. in St. Louis Park. Tony was a great attorney in our close knit office. He was a kind and gentle man that genuinely cared and treated his staff with respect and friendship. My prayers go out to his family. You will rest in peace now Tony. Sincerely, Mary Leonhardt Thayer
My heart pours out to the Rossini. This past year has been a tough year. Your family is in my prayers. May your hearts be consoled by knowing he is now in God's loving arms.
