    We were deeply saddened when we heard the news about Tony. He was a very sweet person, and will be missed so much.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
    Jehovah is the answer to our broken hearts.

    For Tony's family, we want to say, may Jehovah continue to strengthen your resolve to the end.
    Dearest Lowell, unfortunately we know what it is like to lose a child. For us it was like ripping our hearts out.
    To survive this we've let Jehovah provide The Congregation's love and attentions, sooth us. May your Congregation do the same for you.
    For others you've lost a Grandpa, a Father, an Uncle or a Sibling. Again the only real comfort comes from leaning on Jehovah. Please allow him to be your "Rock".
    Your family is in our mind, heart and our prayers.

    I can't believe your gone . We loved you so very much . I know you knew this , but why couldn't you accept it ? You reminded me often of the day we met in that hallway . You said it was like Velcro. You were right . No one else ever understood .from the beginning we just stuck naturally together . We went through a lot of challenges yet somehow we still always championed for each other in different ways. From the beginning you have always been my superman , and you always will be . Always fixing thjngs ,protecting and saving us . ( mostly from myself ), and making the impossible posssible . We faced so many challenges you even thought I had cryotonite . But you became immune . These challenges made us stronger and closer . We finally understood each other , and started communicating on a new level . We found a special love that was just ours . We were family . You called it a pure love. One that couldn't be tainted by anything. you called me your "sunshine ". yet you were the one who gave me the sun . (. My sun lamps ). We share so many happy memories ! Can't even began to start on them . We always talked about the day we would part one another . Our favorite quote was " we will talk about it in our next lives . When we are both cats ". But something changed in you , with us, the last few months . You no longer said this .i know it is a medaphor but after 3 years you now said you would be a tree in the next life . I joked how I would still bother you as a cat ( I know you dislike cats ). Climb up your branches , to taunt big dogs ,stretch and nap , and sharpen my claws . You seemed at peace with this .smiled and said you would expect nothing less . Told me I could climb your arms / limbs and you would protect me from any harm that came chasing . Even if I asked for it . You would hold and comfort me so I could rest . I can even sharpen my claws so you know I can be strong in my own way on my own . Was you preparing me for today ? Knowing I would be lost without you ? Maybe this was your way of saying you will always be with me . At least in my heart . I love you so much Tony . You meant the world to me . I miss you terribly , and just like that first day in the Velcro hallway , we will always be stuck together .when you left part of me did also . I wish our time now would have lasted longer . But I promise I will try my best to make you proud every day .i love you , I hope you find the peace You we're looking for . Because when I get there ...... well you know me .......things will be rolling. Again ...

    I know this is supposed to condulenses for the family . But this is my goodbye tribute to Tony . For those who never knew us . Maybe it will help explains us a little . We were something very special together .

    MUA Tony

    Love Your Sunshine.

    Im so sorry for your loss . He will be missed . May Jehovah comfort the whole family .
