The family wishes to express their gratitude to all those who sustained us with kindness, patience, and love during Tony’s illness and death. To each member of Our Redeemer Lutheran Church and to Pastor Chris Biernacki for unfailing support. To the Bible study group who gave us the courage and strength to persevere when times were difficult. To those friends at the YMCA of the Shoals for the daily smiles and prayers. To the neighbors who stepped in to help in so many ways and to the precious couple who took complete responsibility for the care of our pets while we were away.

Tony loved all God’s creatures and especially his beloved pets. Please remember the P.A.W.S. organization and the local animal shelters.
