It is with heartfelt sorrow that I have to say goodbye to an amazing colleague and friend. Tony was an amazing man full of love laughter and good humour. Most of all I will miss his daily texts of support and encouragement. Times ahead will be rough but I know that you will always be in my heart pushing me forward. I rest much easier knowing that in the end he was holding his beloved Liz’s hand and surrounded by family.

I am deeply sorry to hear of your loss. I hope you can be encouraged from the Bible’s hope for the near future. A time when death will be a thing of the past and we’ll be able to enjoy peaceful conditions on earth. (Ps 37:10,11 ; Rev 21:4)

From: Pat and Hazel Connell
Relation: Friend and Former Colleague

Tony was a friend and former colleague. His light shone brightly in every room he entered, while his warm inviting personality touched all those lucky enough to have known him. Tony, you may no longer be with us…but our memories of you, continues to enrich all our lives, every day.
