I didn't have the pleasure of knowing Anthony during his all-too-short life. But I was deeply affected by reading his obituary and seeing his picture and learning of his brave struggle. I pray that a loving God may take his son Anthony in his arms and give him a place of refreshment light and peace, and that you his family may receive the consolation of your strong faith and the comfort of many blessed and happy memories of Anthony. God bless you all!
