Dearest Donna, I am so very sorry that you lost your son. You have had some sadness in your life, but you have made others so happy to be around you. I will always remember Tony with my son John. I took the kids home after John's birthday parties, and Tony would always tell me to take him home last, because he could push my car out if it got stuck. I have such sweet memories of him.
