Not sure what to say?

We are very sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one. He was a great supporter of KAMU-TV.
My heartfelt sympathy goes out to you and your family and friends during this difficult time.

To express our deep sympathy to you on your loss. We thank Anton for serving our country in the U.S. Army at Fort Knox, Kentucky in the 3rd Armored Division during the Korean Conflict. Because of "Tony" & other young men & women we have our freedom in this great country. May God's Speed Be With This (fellow class mate) Soldier & His Family.

Dear Virginia, though you moved to a different parish I still always remembered and prayed in song with you. May you find peace while saying Tony's favorite prayer, the rosary.
love, Veronika Motekaitis

Tony and I were classmates and fellow agronomy majors. We had many classes together, but I don't think I have seen him since we graduated. I remember him as a serious and dedicated student, but one with a good sense of humor as well. His accomplishments do not surprise me and I am proud to have known him when I did. My condolences go out to the family.

Dr. Bockholt was my boss when I worked at TAMU in the late 1960's. He was a mentor and taught me many valuable lessons and I will always think of him with respect and admiration. May God bless his family.

Aunt Virginia- Please take comfort in knowing that Uncle Tony is in the loving embrace of Our Lord. All our Love, Karen, Kevin & Family
