Dear Anita, Alicia and Tommy,
Sending my sincerest condolences to you and your family on Anthony's passing. My aunt, Peggy Tower, who lives in Cedar Grove, told me the sad news. I will remember Anthony as a kind, funny and generous person who was always so nice to me.
With deepest sympathy on your loss,

Dear Anita, Alisha, Tommy, Tara and Dylan,
So many memories shared over the years. Your hearts are heavy and your minds quietly at peace knowing his pain is over, every moment brings a different emotion. We are thinking of you and sending our prayers and thoughts to you at this most difficult time. I personally will never forget smoking candy cigarettes outside the store in Montclair. And hearing my dad retell so many happy stories of the vacations and trips you all had together. I know he's at peace with my dad and they are wreaking havoc in heaven already . Love, Alyssa, Michael and Sophia
