To the family, you have my sincere condolences. When someone falls asleep in death (Ecclesiastes 9: 5,10) the memories we have of them become our most precious treasure. May those memories comfort you as well as Gods promise at John 6:40.

Emma, Tony, and Erica,

My sincere condolences. I am so sorry for your loss. I'm glad I was able to enjoy some coffee and laughs last November in San Antonio. Then he was off to get his computer fixed when we left. Before that, I remember the nice, warm, welcome after being on I-10 for 13 hours when we left Houston to escape Hurricane Rita.

Keeping you all in my prayers.

Tony was always ready with a smile, and a handshake. He was a typical Cosmopolitan Golf Association golfer, one that loved golf, played because he loved it not because he was very good at it, and loved the companionship. He will now play only good golf with the Good Lord, and we all will miss him. My condolences and prayers to his family.
