Dear Aunt Alice and Tony and Thomas and your families.

Pat&Tom Moore
Dear Aunt Alice, Tony,Thomas and families. We have all lost one of our very best friends. As far back as I can remember my Uncle Tony was so good to me. He carried me piggy-back, let me ride on the back of his tractor. Showed me everything I know today about fixing appliances etc. My front door needs fixing. I wish he would come back and fix it for me. We will always miss him and when something breaks I am counting on him to tell me what to do to fix it. Love you all Pat and Tom & Marcia. Wish we could be with you on Tuesday but you know we are there in our heart.

Although I have only met Tony Sr, a few times I have seen the influence that he has made in his family and he was deeply loved. My sympathy goes out to his surviving family members with special heartfelt memories for Alice, Tony Jr., and Thomas. May you always remember the good times and memories and feel comfort in knowing that Tony Sr, is now relieved of his physical pain and is in the comforting arms of angels.
