Tony, Roe and Gina,
My sincere condolences on the loss of Anthony. My prayers are with you. God bless..
Gina, Cami and Tony, I remember Anthony as a little boy, his smile, and his fun character. Gina, you will remember the day when your Mom and I took you and Anthony, Steve and Bill away for the day. And how, when you were all in the caboose of that train and Anthony covered Steve’s eyes with his hand. I didn’t realize it until I had the pictures developed. Some things we never will, nor will we want to forget. I am so sorry that you lost Anthony but he is with his Mom and in good care. Gloria Sheldon
