Sue, I am so sorry to hear of Tony's death. I wish you and your family great consolation from the wonderful memories you have of Tony. Tony was "Gentleman" by the broadest definition of the term. In the South there can be no finer compliment to a man. I have met many men in my life but very few of them can be called Gentleman. Tony fit the definition perfectly based on his integrity, honesty, empathy, work ethic, humor and ability to listen. May his memory be an example for many others to follow. This will ensure that his life has made a positive influence on our world. Sincerely, Andy

Dear Sue and family, We three extend our deepest sympathy to you on the death of dear Tony. He was always so good to us whenever we visited Moneta and Resurrection. We always enjoyed the spirits he sent over to Jeanne Wagoner’s home where we stayed. We will be having a special Mass for him here at our Thomas More Center. We want to assure you that he is with God. We pray for all of you at this time, in your grief. Sr Joan Bukrey, OSF, Fr Mike Champlin, OP, Fr Nick Punch, OP
