Rest well my old friend. So much uproarious fun did you and I have while working together at Lockheed in the 70s! I still think of some of the pranks we pulled and the jokes we shared that made working the graveyard shift WAY more fun than it should have been. The world is a lesser place without you in it, Tony. Creteusforts and Farradrains forever, pal!

Nothing can ever replace the loss of one's Parent. But We will honor them all our lives by teaching others the love and forgiveness my Father taught me. No matter what the issue, Love conquers all, Forgives all and has no conditions.

Rest In Eternal Peace My Father you will be Missed.
