So sorry to here about Tony. When visiting the family when we were younger, Tony and I hug out alot together.
You were such an extraordinary friend. Irreplaceable. Working with you for 25 years, I came to know a man that while he exhibited this tough guy exterior he really was a man of compassion, one that loved his family & friends. You never had to second guess him….he told it like it was. A country boy at heart. Working side by side him for many years I thought of him as a Forever Friend. One I wanted to live forever. To lose such a friend is inconsolable. God has you now but honestly I do too. My deepest condolences to your beautiful family. Your friend forever Sheila ❤️🙏
What a great picture! That’s the Tony I will remember. 💙 He was one of a kind and will be truly missed. Hope your good memories bring you comfort. Sending my love to you all.
Never realized how much I love this guy! Will forever be inspired by his character, strength, compassion, and sincerity in his love for all of us. Miss him we will but never will his impact on our lives stop growing in who we are and what we share with others as he shared with us. He is truly a legend amongst all, a job well done, a race well run, Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and all making this adjustment to Tony’s “Spiritual Promotion”. This is going to take some time, so looking forward to seeing him again in his new digs. He will forever inspire me and each of us that shared in the miracle his spirit. Luv-Ya-Man 🙂
Couldn’t have said it better, Sheila! He will be greatly missed
