My deepest condolences on Tony's passing. I met Tony and Amparo through NAMI-WM and it is an honor and a privilege to know them both. Tony had a great sense of humor and was a "masterful" Master of Ceremonies at the annual walkathon. He will be truly missed. - Mark H Carney

The Manhattan College alumni community shares the grief, and is now praying for our fellow alumni and the family at this time. The Alumni Office has been informed. As well as the Jasper Jottings community that I personally can reach. We are all a little poorer now. "No man is an island, entire of itself ... any mans death diminishes me". We are sorry for your loss.
