  1. I saw Tony and Marlene often at the holiday on birch st. I remember him telling us how his newspaper route prepared him for the army. He will be missed. Sorry for your loss.

  2. Marlene and Agnes,
    My deepest sympathies to you and your family in the loss of Tony. He always had a smile on his face and a story to tell. His love for visiting with folks isn’t something we see much of anymore but Tony always took the time…He put his trust in his savior that we know well, so, we know that Jesus received him with open arms. What great comfort that brings to us left behind. We hope and rejoice in the promise of being reunited with our loved ones once again. Keeping you all in prayer.
