Tony was 42. Engaged to be married to a lovely girl. We were starting to plan a wedding. Then all of a sudden we had to plan a funeral. I will never get over the shock of it!! As far as I knew he was in good health. Never any cardiac problems. But, he had a sudden heart attack. And living in a small country American Samoa. There was not very good emergency care available. Since I am a retired nurse, I will always believe he could have been saved if he was here !! But, I am coming to accept that it was out of my hands!! I just hope and pray every day that I will be with him again someday! Peace to you at this time of the year when we all feel so much grief. Merry Christmas. To celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. The only way to our beloved children.
Thank you Melinda for remembering Tonys love for the Dolphins. Every time I watch them play I cry through the whole game. I just wish they could win once in a while!!! Tony was always for the underdog. He was that kind of guy. I do miss him so much. As I know you miss Candace. Please enjoy her children. They are her. I wish Tony had a chance to have a child for me to love. But it did not work out that way. Peace.
I'm so sorry for all you have been going through, it's hard enough for me to deal with the death of my wife I can't imagine having to deal with a daughter, brother and friend also. My Prayers will be with you.
Thank you Melinda. That was his last picture. It was a selfie he took on this IPad. As far as wailing is concerned, I do that silently every day. I don't think we'll get past it, we'll walk along side it. Your picture of Candace is beautiful.
