I hope you Aunt Sue and Mom shared a great big hug when Mom arrived in Heaven. I miss you all so very much!

Love You,

I wish I could still pick up the phone and talk to him!

My god-father, Shake, will always be alive in my memories! He was a wonderful, helpful and peaceful man! I will miss him everyday, He, as well as my god-mother, Sylvia, are in my thoughts and prayers daily. I was truly blessed with such loving god-parents!

Uncle Shake was a sincere, caring and loving man, a true "gentle giant" that touched many peoples lives. He will be fondly remembered by all, but sadly missed! Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife of many years, Aunt Sylvia. We wish her strength and peace. God bless you both!

My brother, Shake, was very important in my life to me, especially when we were growing up. I loved him so and will miss him so much. My heart aches, but I have lots of memories that will keep him alive in my heart forever. I am sure that God will have a very special place for him in heaven, as Shake truly deserves it. God bless him and God bless Sylvia, as well. I will miss him!

For Dion, So sorry to hear of the death of your grandfather. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Aunt Judi Henry and Uncle Doug.

made such on impact on our lives, it's hard to pinpoint any one thing.He spent a lot of time with my husband,Ed, his brother and best friend,helping Ed on the track and the garage if Ed asked for help. We spent a ot of time with Shake and Sylvia after we all moved to Florida. Shake and Ed did a lot of deep sea fishing. Ed passed away in February, and if there is fishing and bowling in heaven, I'm sure they found each other, and are doing that.

A "Mans Man" and a true friend to the Antolini family. Our condolances to Sylvia, Sharon, Dion, Steven and the entire Jechura family.
Life for Karen and I will not be the same here in Largo, Florida again.
We loved him dearly and he will be missed daily.
