Not sure what to say?

Signe, Judy, all the Oakleys--I am sorry I was out of town and missed the visitation and funeral. My prayers are with you. He was a nice man!

I am so very sorry to hear of Tony's passing. When I was a child, he was in the Progressive Playhouse with my mother and and always so very kind to me, as a little girl. I remember he had a red MG, which I thought was wonderful, and he took me for a ride in it. I am saddened by the passing of a good, and kind man. My sympathies.

Our deepest sympathy on the loss of your beloved husband, father, grandfather, and brother. We thought so highly of Tony, not only because of his work, but because of who he was as a person...kind, thoughtful, and loving. May you be comforted by many warm memories.

Please accept my sympathy on the passing of Tony. He will be greatly missed by many.

Tony gave me my very first job in the Circulation Dept. of the newspaper. He was always so kind to me and I appreciated his goodwill and humor. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
