Sorry to hear of Tony's passing. Praying for the family. He was a cousin and even though we didn't see each other often, he was always sweet to me whenever we met. May the Lord give him peace and rest.

My prayers go out to Tony's family. He was such a sweet man. Could not ask for any better, I worked with him at Trane back in the 70's and we had so much fun at work.
