First time we met in Fort Myers, he gave me the nickname of French Gorilla as we were moving a fish tank for Alycia. He tried to teach me crosswords (no luck there) and we never had enough time together to talk about the passion we shared about Space. Tony, you were exceptional, so giving and so loving. Life is always too short, so glad and proud I had the honor to meet you. Will miss you !

He was truly a great man. I have so many special memories of him during my four years of high school. He would drive Nicole and I all over until we finally got our licenses. After high school, I used to run into him frequently at Saint Anne's Church and he would catch me up on everyone in the family. Heaven gained another great soul and I am sure Mrs. C was so excited to greet him. My thoughts and prayers with you all xoxo
