Dear Family,
We think about Uncle Tony with a smile on our faces.
He gave us so much happiness, and his passing left a big hole on our hearts.
He was an honorable man, adored by all that knew him.
Somebody as extraordinary as Uncle Tony will never be forgotten! He will be missed, however his glow, consideration, and gentle manner will always be remembered.
We hope you will find peace within you!
