My deepest and most sincere condolences to the Tucker family.
To my nephew Josiah:
I know you're hurting and this is a deep wound to your heart. All hearts heal in time. Just remember the conversations and the time you spent with your father and he'll always be with you. When you feel you need to shed a tear, do it. Tears is a sign of love and strength not weakness. You have PLENTY of family to support you when you are ready to receive it. You and the rest of your family are in my prayers. Sending prayers of strength during your time of sorrow. May Anthony rest in eternal peace. I love you Josiah!! Forever your NJ Auntie. xoxo
