I will always love my dear sweet brother. From the first time I sat eyes on him at the age of 5, he was my best friend. I thank God for the man he was and for his unfailing love . I was happy my parents named him Anthony . Anthony is a beautiful soul that now lives on in heaven. Our mother joined him July 9,2019. They are alive with Christ and together , with us in memory. To God be the Glory. I could not have asked for a more loving brother and mother. Thankful for the 27 years we had and the man he became. Always trying to do what was right and just. Until we meet again when I come home, Love you and miss you.
