I met Tony for the first time when I worked at the Home Store in Roseland,then I would meet him at St. George, Andrew H.S. and occasionally at McDonald's. It was great to talk about the old neighborhood and the people. He was truly a gentleman and a privilege to know. Our deepest sympathy extends to your whole family.

There will never be another Tony. He said he only wanted to make my life better when we first met and he never disappointed me. I'm am a better person for having had Tony in my life. He taught me how to love unselfishly.
