"I had the pleasure of going to school with Tony and graduating high school with him as well. We knew each other also from his earlier years in Early. I had not seen Tony for many years, and yet the countless times I spent at his house next to St. Mary's seems like yesterday. I really valued his friendship and he really was there for me whenever I needed something. My parents knew Julia and were very thankful she made me feel welcomed in her home. I will never forget her kindness and goodness. Years later, I had the privilege of working at Hy-Vee with Rose, Jess and Amanda and found them, like Tony, to be friends who were loyal, kind, and hard working. My heart goes out to the entire family and know you will be in my thoughts and prayers. While I have never had the pleasure of meeting Stacy, I do know what it is like to lose your spouse. I will say special prayers for Stacy to realize the intense pain she may now has will eventually give way to celebrating the life you shared. It takes time, but time does indeed heal. I truly believe Tony's spirit is with all of you now and will always be with you. Please know I am so sorry for your loss. Blessings to all - Al Vonnahme "
