Tony, you and your brother are so special to us. After your dad passed away I know it was so hard on you and your brother. For a mother to lose a husband and six weeks later lose a child or as your dad called you, number one and your brother, number two, it's unbearable. It's very hard on the family left behind. I have cherished my family values of love, respect, hard work and sacrifice and always put my family first. Raising a family is not a walk in the park. I love you more than you will ever know and if you don't remember anything else, son, remember that you a precious angel but my love couldn't save you. The earth was given an incredible gift when you were born. Heaven received a wonderful angel when you died. Tony, have a wonderful birthday in paradise. The only gifts today will be the sweet memories left behind of love, laughter, joy and happiness that echo on in our hearts and our minds. So much love, Mom and Jay.

Betty, It is so hard to find the right words at this time to let you know how sorry I am that you are going through this. I hated when I heard about Don and I tried to get in touch with you but nothing I tried seemed to work. Nancy sent me a message about Tony and my heart breaks for you because as you know, I have been there and it's extremely hard. My prayers are for God to give you comfort and see you through this. Please call me some time and let's get together. My phone number is 763-4626. Love you my friend.

I love you. ❤️I’m here if you ever need a thing. Sincerely.

I am so sorry Betty. A parent should never have to bury a child. It is the one of the hardest things you will ever go through. Especially after Don passed shortly before Tony. We were more than cousins. We just couldn't ever get along. Even though I didn't see him often, I thought about him often. He will be missed by everyone. My prayers are with you and the rest of the family and friends.
