  22. Celine and family,

    Please accept my sincere condolences on the passing of Tony. I had the privilege of working with Tony for 2 years. He always came in cheerful and literally lit up the house. My fondest memories are:
    1. When Tony would bring in his travel books and talk about his Carribean escapades. He was always planning another trip. Whenever he showed me his pictures, he always had a smile on his face and a cold beer in hand.
    2. I will never forget how he would dance with the individuals and literally see their faces gleen from ear to ear. He would play his reggie music and dance like no one else.
    3. Tony was always there to help anyone in need. If you needed help with your car, he was always there like a shot.

    The three things one leaves behind are character, memories and relationships. Tony gifted me with all three. His character was steller, the fond memories I have are unforgotten and I treasured my relationship with him. Not a day goes by without thinking about him. I was fortunate to talk with him on December 30, 2010 and will always remember that no matter how tough it got for Tony, he always looked at the bright side.

    Tony was a great man, father, friend and has touched lives beyond even my scope of understanding.

    Best Regards,

    Kent
