    Going to miss you Tony.

  2. Jan E Taylor says:

    Tony, Tony, Tony Bologna! Growing up you and your brothers were more like my little brothers than nephews. Oh, the mischief we’d get into!

    A nephew’s love is special
    A gift beyond compare.
    You only know the meaning
    When he is no longer there.
    A special time
    A special face ( omg! Those beautiful eyes)
    A special nephew I cannot replace.
    With an aching heart
    I whisper low
    I love you, Tony
    And I will miss you so.
    Rest in peace, now, no worries, no woes.
    Aunt Jan & Uncle Jerry
