We were blessed to have spent a lot of time with Tony in Michigan. We will all miss his funny sayings, great laugh, upbeat personality and acceptance of all. Bruce will miss dinners and "tea" at Cuginos and fixing things around our house. We love you and are praying for your strength during this difficult time.
Anthony was a good guy he brought out the best in you, I didn't know him all that well, but from what I did know he was good for you as well as you being good for him. You have a lot of memories of the times you shared together, treasure them, keep them in your heart,and remember all the good times. If you need anything at all I am here.
So sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers. He is at peace.
One year later ... you remain forever in my heart. Love you dear brother.
