Tony, you were one of my closest friend. We laughed together, cried together, fussed at each other, debated together , consoled each other partied together and just plain chilled together.... I remember things as if it were yesterday. My :NOW" best friend and I met because of you and 37 years later we are still as close as ever. I remember that we had talked the night that you were taken from us about doing dinner the following weekend, so when the phone rang that same night it was a total shock. God has a plan for you and even if I didn't understand it at that time I do now... or at least I no longer question "HIS" plans. He had bigger things for you to do in Heaven. You are truly missed and I wonder what things would have been like if you were still here BUT I know I will see you again... Rest in God's arms until I get there.... Love you still
