All of us send our sincere sympathies to you in this time. Uncle Anthony was someone special to all of us. He will be sadly missed Margaret Torina and family Margaret Torina

I was privileged to become a friend of Anthony's in his elder years. He had a great sense of humor combined with quick wit to make his stubbornness comical. He was kind, polite and honest (except maybe when we were playing cards)! Above all things, Anthony adored his wife Mary Jane. His respect, admiration and love for her was a prime example of a Godly marriage. We shared many wonderful times & I'm thankful to have been a tiny part of Anthony's journey. My heart goes out to Mary Jane & the entire family. May knowing you have more folks praying for you than you even realize help to bring comfort now & in the days ahead. Jeni Sauve

My sincere gratitude to all of you that have reached out to me and my family at this sad time. Please know that all your prayers and support has helped beyond what words can say. My husband of 59 years will surely be missed but there's a saying I read somewhere that says: You don't control the day you are born, you don't control the day you die, what you DO control is that little dash between those two dates... that's who you are.....and he lived and was loved by so many. He lived his dash...... Sincerely, Mary Jane and family Mary Jane Arena
