Not sure what to say?

It has been 2years now but you are still remembered on your death anniversary and especially on your birthday with Margaritas! Love.

Dear Tony thank you for your unique friendship through the years, it was a precious gift not only to me but also to the children (especially Heleen) . We will remember you always.

Dear Uncle T, i still remember so clearly how Martine and I came to Chicago after my high school graduation on the verge of our big trip across the US. We thought we could "wing it" but luckily your good sense prevailed and you sat down with us to set up a framework for our intensive trip across the US. The planning of that trip also gave us a framework to talk about so many things from your past life and the start of my adult life.I truly cherish that memory. Thank you for your...

My sincere condolences to your family for the loss of your love one. May the God of comfort be with you during this sad occasion and may his loving words at John 6:40 console your heart.

I will remember my dear uncle Tony for his humor, his typical laugh, his knowledge of movies & music and of course his great insights in the Lissy family. We will miss you !

Tony has molded me more than he probably realized. A wacky compensation for my daily European environment. With food for thought mixed with crazy puns, an ideal recipe. He has now boarded the Jefferson Starship. May he cruise the Universe at warp 10.

Tony was my younger brother and we were just the two of us. He was 12 years old when I left for the Netherlands as a young bride. When I saw him again he was almost 18. We gradually became friends in spite of the distance. The boys and their children know him also as Uncle T and will miss his querky sense of humor. Love you, The Witch of Wassenaar
