Tony was my first boyfriend. We went to the same high school but actually met when he and his family moved to the street where I lived. We both knew as soon as we met we were attracted to one another. Not just physically, but Tony was a good soul. He had such a heart for the underdog. He made me laugh and just happy in general. He talked about being a police officer often. I knew he would be an excellent one. I think of him often as he was my first love. Sadly we were too young in our lives to remain together. I mean this with the utmost respect to his wife and children. My point is, I want the world to know Tony Jansen was a good man. And although tragic what happened, he truly went to The Lord serving others in the way he dreamed. Blessings to his family; mother, father, brothers, wife and children. My prayers often include you.
