To Aunt Frances and Family,
Uncle Tony has a special place in my heart. He had a way about him that would always make me look on the bright side of things. Although we all haven't talked to each other in years I have often thought of Uncle Tony and the rest of you.

Uncle Tony,
May you rest now and watch down upon the rest of us with those beautiful eyes and wonderful smile. Will always remember the family gatherings at your house and the precious times we shared. So glad I had the opportunity to spend time with you in Virginia last year! You will always be in our hearts!

Dear Aunt Frances and family,
I am so sorry to hear about Uncle Tony. I have so many fond memories of him. He could make you laugh at the darkest times in life. With the way the world is today, I truly believe that God needed someone at his side to make him laugh.
I am glad he is no longer suffering and is making the angels smile instead.
You are all in our hearts and prayers.
We love you,

To Anthony and Anthony's family....
The sunshine that always appeared on your face when you smiled will be missed by all us you leave behind. Although I didn't meet you until later in your life, Anthony, it didn't take long to realize what a kind, gentle, and amazing man you were. You were quick witted and your sense of humor was remarkable. Although we will miss you, I am happy you are no longer suffering. We know we will see you again. Linda

To My Beloved Father,

There is no real place to start, and there is no end. You have always been the most special man in my life. No one could ask for more in a Dad. Unconditional love is what you gave and I cannot thank you enough for that. There are no words in the English language that can describe what I have to say to you now, so I will say them in my heart and in my prayers and I know you will hear. You will be with me always . . . . so until we meet again, you carry a piece of my heart with you. Much Love Always!!

Proud to be your daughter,
Geraldine Anne

Tony now you can rest in peace and we take comfort in knowing you are with the rest of the family. When you see Tom, Bill and Ralph you can talk about the family get togethers, the pool parties, New Years eve and especially Tom and Dot's anniversary party when you drew cartoons and wrote hints for their treasure hunt. You were always funny and had unused talent. Wasyl will remember you for all the war and service stories you told him and thank you for being Gary's godfather. We will miss you Tony, you will always be remembered.

With Love,
Wasyl and Rose

To the only real Father I have ever known... thanks for stepping in and taking on the job.

I will never forget you, and you will be sorely missed for your vast knowledge, your amazing sense of humor (which I am told I "inherited"), and for your patience in guiding and teaching others.

Good night, Sweet Prince. May angels guide your way to Heaven's gates.

Love Always,
