We couldn't believe the news when we heard about Tony. It seems like yesterday that Jeff and I were getting married and Tony and Lorraine helped us so much with everything. Including standing up with Jeff and being our witness. Your support then was enormous. Prayers and more prayers for you Tony. And hugs for you Lorraine and your family.
