Dad, when I met Anthony you welcomed my daughters and I into your family and it was like knowing you all our lives. You answered many late night calls of me crying and being frustrated and told me to hang in there. Your outburst of laughter and excitement filled my heart and reminded me a lot of my father. I am grateful for being able to be a part of your family and grateful for all that you taught Anthony. One thing I can truly say is a part of you will live on through him. I will make good on my promise to you and make sure Anthony is alright. We thank and praise God for you. ❤️❤️❤️
