Not sure what to say?

So saddened to learn of Anthony’s death. I have a lot of good memories with Anthony, sisters Karen and Susan. Also their cousin Judy “Cookie”. My sincere sympathies to his entire family.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

Hate it I couldn't be there today wit everyone. Anthony was a great uncle ... my thoughts and prayers were there...

Brother, since you passed away, life just hasn't been the same. I would move heaven and earth to have you back again. The time we spent together meant the world to me. I have many treasured memories as we grew up together, happily. I am so grateful for the years we had, and the closeness that we shared. Your thoughtfulness and loyalty, and the way you always cared.. You were a wonderful brother. I miss you no end. You were more than just my family, you were a kind and supportive...

Mary Beth and family, I’m sorry for your loss. I can imagine that the reunion with your dad and Barbara (my very best friend) in Heaven was beautiful. You all are in my thoughts.

So sorry to see this. He was a happy person to talk to. I can recall him and my brother being good friends.

My heart grieves for your loss I pray God comforts you all through this time of grief, only God can comfort you and heal the void today and the days ahead.
Love you all.

My dear, precious, older brother. I am at a loss for words. The shock is so great. But I know he is at peace now. The peace he searched for on this earth, for the past few years, he has found. I told him I plan to see him again. We can sit on the porch and laugh again. I love you dearly.
