Last Sunday February 28th, we attended the wake of Tony V. He was father/father in law of friends of ours. We had known him for the last 19 years. He was nearly 86 and was a surrogate grand pa to our kids. Always, warm, kind and inviting, he always made you feel like family. I was so touched as I walked past his photos at the funeral home. Each one had him smiling with family and friends. His wake was well attended, everybody smiling as they talked about Tony or as he was known “papatone”. Here is the memory of man that made a difference in this world by being present for his family and friends, not by blogging and bashing others, or acting as a shameless narcissist on facebook. The world is a better place because Tony was here, and hopefully others will learn from him. Thank you Tony, you will be missed.
