    God bless my dear Uncle Tony. He was a very special person in my life. He always had a smile for me and I love him very much. I recall so many wonderful memories of him and Aunt Linda and my dear cousins. And as my aunt became dependant on him, he was always there for her. He loved her so much. And his grandchildren and great-grandchildren were his joy. He was always so proud of his children. I remember sitting and watching his eyes light up when he talked about them. He will be missed. Uncle Tony you are in my heart forever. Love you always!

    He was the greatest brother ever. He baby sat, protected and loved his little sister. I will miss him so very much.
