  1. I wish to express my condolences to each person that Mr. G ever touched. He always welcomed my presence with an open heart and that shows the kind person that he was. I will miss most his stories about the war, cause I had even more respect for his courage. God Bless…..

  2. Michele, I am very sorry for your loss. In these times there are no words to heal the pain, just know that I will say a prayer for you. Brian

  3. Michelle, I am so sorry to hear about Tony. Please accept my sincere sympathies. You\’ll be in my thoughts and prayers. His kindness and thoughtfulness has not been forgotten. Let me know if you need anything.

  4. Was just thinking of Tony today. I was just wondering if anyone could send me a picture of him? I worked for Tony for many years and he was a big influence in my life.
