Anthony and I became friends in middle school when we rode the bus together. “Big A” was his nickname. Nowadays I would see him at the garage and we would talk for a bit. My heart hurts that he is gone too soon. He will be missed.

Our hearts go out to you all. Anthony was always so kind from the time we met him when he and Kacey started school together many years ago. He would always speak and was always willing to help Teddy figure out whatever problems he had with our vehicles. He will be missed. Prayers for comfort.
