"What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget."

Deepest sympathies to the Faraone Family during this very difficult time.

My deepest sympathy to the Faraone family. I met Tony a few times at events Diane was participating in and could see how proud he was of his daughter. I also feel I knew him from stories Diane would tell about him. He seemed like a wonderful husband, father, Papa and Great-Papa. My prayers are with you.

Faraone Family, I only met Tony once. It was at Diane's first Tri in Santa Cruz, CA. He was a very nice man and so very supportive of Diane and her adventures that day. I've heard many great things about Tony and I hope your memories will help you through this difficult time.

Our sincere condolences to Aunt Jennie, cousins Diane & David. We loved Uncle Tony very much. He was so much fun to be around. It is so hard to believe that he is gone. I guess GOD needed another angel. He has gone to be with the rest of his family now and they will take good care of him, I am sure of that. We certainly will remember all the the family reunions and the times we spent together at each other's homes in the past years.

Our prayers are with you during your time of sorrow and always.

Love, Suzie, Shanelle and Raymond

Our deepest sympathy to Jennie, David, and Diane and all the family for their great loss. Tony and I picked prunes during the 1940's. We also went to Woodrow Wilson Junior High and San Jose
Technical High School together. We golfed on occasion. He was a very competitive person and a hard worker. He was a long time friend. We will miss

We'll always remember how fun it was to have Tony (and Jenny) with us for the wine weekend in Monterey, as well as participating with him at Santa Cruz Wharf to Wharf. What an example Tony is to living your life to the fullest. With love,
