My thoughts and prayers go out for this wonderful man &. his family. I´ve been blessed to have had Tony as a close friend, confidant, and great role model these past twenty years. He´s shown me by example how to work, live life and treat others by the way he lived. Tony was rock solid and always willing to help those around him with anything & at anytime when they needed help, always dependable. His values have impacted me and are so visible in his family as well. I´m so thankful & proud to have had Tony as such a close and great friend! Here´s to your journey Tony..... I´m sure your already at work helping others:)
