My heart hurts.
January 29, 2018
My favorite memory of Anthony lasted for a span of about thirty minutes, ten years ago, and hundreds of miles away near the earth's equator. My Mother, he and I were flying in a small canoe down a wide and rocky river with nothing but 2 paddles and thankfully, an experienced river guide. My trusting Mother was perched at the front of this little moving island of safety, and the guide, perhaps mischievous by nature, commanded Anthony and I to "dig left" "dig right" and "dig in NOW," as he steered us right into the worst of the worst (it seemed at the time) whirl pools. I guess Anthony and I both felt a keen sense of our mortality at that moment, because as the paddlers, we knew we had to work together. Our eyes locked and one of us gestured wordlessly to the other "I've got my eyes on you!" I don't remember who gave the gesture -- it was one of those adrenaline filled moments in life that we forget exactly how it happened, but we both understood that we needed to dig in like never before, as if our life depended on it! I will always remember that time on the river with Anthony and my Mother. Anthony will be missed by many....Love, Jenny, Tom, Alex, and Jimmy

Rest in peace Ace! You will be missed. Here's a great Anthony story....If there is one thing I remember about Anthony, it's that he hated being told that something "could not be done". One day, Anthony, David (a helper), and I were fiddling around in the back yard. Anthony was obsessed with pulling any and all vines out of the oak trees in their yard at the new house in Hammond. There was a vine that was as large around as my thigh and it stretched over a 100 feet to the tops of the trees. David and I were saying "forget about it", "there's no way" "that thing weighs more than all of us,". And all Ace could do was shake his head. I remember David and I started walking toward the shed to grab a chainsaw and a ladder, more or less, to find a solution for this behemoth of a vine. We both looked back and Anthony was hanging on to the vine (almost like Tarzan) and using every muscle in his body to try to yank this massive vine out of the tree. David and I, instantly inspired by this little old Sicilian man hanging from a vine in the tree, ran to assist him. Eventually we were all three swinging on the vine and it came loose sending us all tumbling to the grass. Everybody was ok except for the vine. We managed to pull the entire thing out of the tree. And so now when people tell me that something can't be done, I think about Anthony and the vine, and I try no matter what. I love and miss you Ace. -Billy Tickle

My friend. I am at a loss for words. You came into my life at a time when I really needed someone who could provide me with sound advice. You did that...not once, or twice, but every time I reached out to you. You will always be remembered as one of my favorite people.
P.S. I love & miss you Peggy .

Deepest condolences for the family of Mr Bertucci. Obviously a talented man by way of the law. Having a love for spiritual things his wisdom reminds one of the wisdom of Gamaliel spoken of at Acts 5:34-39. May he be placed in God's book of remembrance (Malachi 3:16 ) so that he will one day experience the real life.
