  1. Tony was a guy with a really big heart. His list of charities sounds just like Tony. “An animal shelter of your choice” rings so true.
    He put the garden club on its feet with incredible work on the plant sale and worked hard to get lots of people involved We will miss him and his friendly open smile.
