    • My deepest sympathy to everyone in the family. Please allow your Heavenly Father to comfort you at this difficult time. At John 5:28-29 He gives the promise “…the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out…” and at Psalms 37:11 He gives the promise “The meek will possess the earth and they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace.” These promises are assured by His love for us. May these truths strengthen your faith…and guide to the day you are re-united with Tony. (Psalms 83:18)

    • I am so saddened to hear about Tony. He and I were very close when we were young. My mom and dad (Larry and Susie Moe) had a lot of fun times with Peg and Ed. Tony was a great person and way too young to leave all of you. My heart goes out to all of you. Prayers to you and your family.
