Our deepest sympathies to the family. It was a touching tribute for him with the harmonica players at the service. I remember when Uncle Tony played the harmonica at my mom's funeral. It was a special moment. He will be remembered as a sweet man.

My deepest sympathy to the Arunno family. Tony was a dear neighbor who always had a smile on his face and kind words to say.

Uncle Tony was as is a treasure to our family. We got to spend many Christmas's with him. Have lots of pictures and movies of him paying his harmonica with our daughter Jennifer playing her clarinet. He taught her how to play the theme from The Godfather with NO music. You would think those two were full-blooded relatives! He loved our whole family and had a special relationship with each one. He loved and respected my hubby Gregg, he loved our daughter Sarah (they shared the same birthday) and her son Chase - he called him "The Little Cowboy". I remember as a kid he used to blow up his thumb and make his arm muscle pop up. Always telling a story or singing or playing a tune...that's how I'll always remember my "Uncle Tony Ony O". I will miss him very much.

Our sincere and heartfelt condolences to Jim Enkey and his family during this sad time in the lost of their father and grandfather. Just know that you are in our thoughts and prayers as you say goodbye. Tony was truly one of the nicest men I've ever met and I know he will be sorely missed. Trust in God and know that Tony is telling him the most wonderful stories.

With all our sympathy - Dana Tarrant and Dee Morri.
