Dear Family,
I am so very sorry for your loss. While I did not really know Anthony, I did see him on occasion when he would come in to Carol's shop when I would be there . I noticed how loving he always was to her. Separation from loved ones is always difficult, but the loss of young people seems to intensify hurt. Please know I am praying to God for your comfort and strength.
