I replaced his windshield twice this year and the last time, we got to talking more and he was actually trying to help me get a foothold into obtaining an IT job. He was an extremely nice guy and it hurts even more as I was talking to him just earlier this week. My work dispatch is the one who told me. Rest in peace, Tony. You'll be missed by many.

V, you’ll be missed. Been a while, but you were easily one of the best and most level headed NCOs I’ve worked with. Great soldier, great officer. Prayers to your family, friends, and department. The world lost a good one today.

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
