Uncle Tony was a great man, he always helped me whenever he could. And iam sadden by his unexpected passing, One never knows how life is going to be everyday you wake up and your expected to do the same thing day after day. Than the worst thing happens. Got to be grateful that you living and enjoy life while you can. Keep GOD close, It's just hard knowing that I spoke with him months ago and he said he was doing ok. Kinda of angry that my Grandma passed away because of someone stupid mistake, now My Uncle has passed away. Just Sad and upset that I missed the viewing Anur Barbara told me about it. Why couldn't someone call me when no one seen me there the first day. Am family
