I always enjoyed seeing uncle Tony. He always treated me with kindness; and I saw that he was that way with others as well. He wouldn’t talk about himself, unless I asked him. He would mostly ask questions, listen, and then make a joke if necessary. :) I enjoy hearing stories about him from my mother-on-law, who grew up close with him. I will miss him dearly next time I am in New York. But I do miss him now.

Eternal rest, grant unto him, oh Lord. And, let your Perpetual Light shine upon him. And, may he Rest In Peace. Amen!

Tony was a great friend and business associate! We worked together several times in Trenton NJ and Ithaca NY where we sold Christmas Trees, Easter and Mothers Day Flowers and pumpkins at various locations. He was very honest and trust worthy and we had good results from all our endeavours. I will miss him and send sincere condolences to his family and friends. RIP Tony.
