    Tony was a wonderful person always the same each time I saw him . I work @ St Francis hospital when I realized it was Tony I called to his room the first thing he said was he was sorry to hear about the death of my husband JP it didn’t matter how he felt @ the time he was thinking about my loss. Tony will be missed
    I’m sending my condolences to the family
    Remember earth has no sorrow that Heaven can not heal my sincere sympathy
