I remember a specific time, when I was having a real hard time. Uncle Tony was the only one that offered me a warm place to stay and didn't expect anything in return. He was a kind hearted man. I have never forgotten that & I never will. I love you Grandma Donna and my Prayers are always with you.

I was Tony's friend and girlfriend in High School at Heppner OR. He was bright, quick-witted, good in sports and a cool guy that I will always remember fondly. Rest in Peace, Tony. My Love and Blessings go to his family. He will be missed.
