WE WILL MISS UNCLE TONY !! MUCH LOVE AND SYMPATHY TO AUNT RENA AND THE GIRLS AND PAUL !!!
Please know that Tony left behind lots of ‘old’ friends. The class of ’57 knew him, but some of us were connected through the North Side – what good times we had growing up there. I still have an e-mail that I exchanged with Tony in July, 2014, after his picture was in the paper. I told him there’s a shop nearby, down here in Florida, with the name Guerrero – it always reminds me of him. His granddaughter Marissa typed the reply for him. It’s hard to let go of loved ones, but I’d like to think he’s in a better place. That’s what got me through losing my parents. You take care. Our thoughts are with you.
Rena and Family, I am so sorry that Tony is no longer with us, but I am sure
he is having a wonderful homecoming with the loved ones that preceded him. When I think of the summers in Penn. I always think of you, Rena,Tony and the kids. I will always remember and appreciate how much you helped us (Robert and me) during the summer.
I wish I was here, but know that though I am far away, you are in my
thoughts and prayers. I love you all and send you hugs……..maria
Thank you Maria, so nice to hear from you.
Thank you so much Maria
I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you and your family.
My heart hurt to hear the news of Tony. He was always so personable and genuinely friendly in our class of ’57. I pray God rewards his kindness in Heaven.
I can never truly express the grief of losing a very loved relative. My heart also goes out to Aunt Rena and my cousins. I was always carry the memories of Uncle Tony in my heart.
Thank you so much Sam Jr, these words mean alot
I was very saddened to hear of Tony’s passing. He was a dear childhood friend with shared family values because of our nationality. He once told me that we were the most envied kids in grade school because his dad owned a “pop” factory and my dad owned a pin ball machine and juke box business. Many years have passed since those innocent days of “pop” and “play” and Tony obviously had to a very happy and successful life. He will be sorely missed by family and friends but heaven is receiving a kind and gentle man. I would like to extend my greatest sympathy to his family and pray for Tony’s soul.
