Deanna, Sylvia and Family,
I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I wish I was in town to give you my love. I will always cherish the childhood memories of Tony and all the bowling allies we visited. Robbie remembers building many fences with him. Although we grew apart and never knew your son, you are in our thoughts. We've always considered Tony a good friend and a good man. WE WILL MISS YOU!!!
Love Angie and Robbie

Dear Fred, Yolanda, Sylvia & Melba, My heart is breaking with you as you say goodbye to Tony. Oh the memories that flood my mind of our childhood -- playing tag after dark in the front yard, teaching and learning Spanish and English to one another when you first moved to White City -- and all the contact through our growing up years and into adulthood. Our prayers and thoughts are with you during this difficult time. Love, Christine (Brinton) Grings

Sylvia, Freddy, Melba, Lonny and Deanna ...

So many memories come to my mind. So many years of history. Tony is an inspiration to me. These last few years his courage and strength of character became so pronounced to me. Wow ... could he bounce back and continue to move forward, optimistic but realistic. He lived with dignity, courage and grace.

"Dream as if you will live forever, Live as if you will die today."

Be very proud of this man, his character and courage are rare.

I ran into him at the 7-11 a few weeks ago ... big smile on his face and looking very good.

You all now have three loving angels in heaven, looking down and guiding you.

You are all in my heart ... God hold you in Grace and comfort.

My love and friendship always, Jeanne

I was so sorry to hear about the death of Tony. He was a very special man and I cherished the time that I spent with him when I was married to his brother, Fred.
I know he will live on in his son and his nieces & nephews. I know his mother & father welcomed him with open arms. I want to give my condolences to his family. I still have one of the wooden letter holders that Tony made. I will cherish it always.
