I am so sorry to hear of Anthony's passing. I know he has struggled for years and although I reached out to him several times I respect his privacy.

I wish I could make the service but have live in Florida and will be unable to attend.

Mr and Mrs C, I can not express in words my sorrow for you. Just know he always spoke highly of both of you.

Thoughts and prayers

Dear Aunt Joann, Uncle Anthony, Annette, Michelle, and Lisa, I am sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family always. Try to always remember, "those we have held in our arms for a little while, we hold in our hearts forever." My dear cousin Anthony Rest in Peace. Love, Caroline Colarusso Cashin and family.

I'm very sorry to hear of the loss of Anthony. Losing a loved ones brings on so much grief, and mixed emotions. I just recently lost my dad this year. Others wanted to be there for me to give me comfort, but I found that most times I just wanted to be alone. And if you ever feel that way, that is normal. Just remember to not push people away completely. Find a balance between time with other people, and time alone. In the Bible at Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 it tells us that "Two are better than one, for if one of them falls, the other can help him up." I hope this helps you as it did me. Prayers for the family.

Dear Auntie, Uncle, Annette, Michelle, Lisa and family. I am very sorry for the loss of Anthony. Whenever I bumped into him at the supermarket or a store he was always smiling and gave a "BIG" cousin hug that lasted a very long time. I will cherish all the memories of my dear cousin that I keep inside. He was a very good person with a BIG heart. Rest in Peace my beloved cousin. You will now be an Angel for your entire family. You will be missed. Love to the moon and back.

Donna, Joe, Joey and Maria Nasta
