Dear Lisa, Maria, and Antonia (Toni)!! So very sorry about the passing of your Dad on April 17th!! Almost unbelievable as we just received an Easter Card from him!! He was a wonderful, personable man who loved his wife, children, grandchildren, and family! He will be so missed as we would always get to see him on his trips to Williambsburg, VA to visit Antonia, and his granddaughter, Lily!! We had fantastic dinners, birthdays, and get-togethers together! An accomplished musician, he will be playing the piano with beautiful songs now for your Mom, in Heaven as well, who he dearly missed and for all the Angels up there!!

To Lisa and all Tony's family. So sad to hear of Tony's death. He was my music teacher in Spencer during my high school years, and a good friend of my husbands, a fellow teacher. He was such a good music teacher, always demanding perfection. Every time I hear the Hallelujah Chorus I think of Tony, and always will.

Barbara Tominsky

Maria, Antonia, and Lisa I am so sorry to hear of your dads passing. As a kid, I would always get excited when your mom and dad, Frank and Elena and my parents would get together for cards because I would get to see Uncle Tony. When I would see him in later years, especially the last 10, your dad was always interested in what I was up to, and always had some advice for me once I told him. You will all be in my thoughts and prayers, your dad was a great man. Curt
