To The Family.
I knew Tony for many years, most closely when he was part of the congregation in Quitman. He was a true Christian at heart and in spirit if I ever met one. He loved the Lord's word and read the Scriptures diligently, more than anyone I ever knew preachers included. If you wanted to know something about some obscure person or event in the Old Testament all you had to do was ask Tony. He knew. I often told people if anyone in Quitman makes it to heaven, it will be Tony. I might add that he also walked more miles than anyone I ever knew, preachers included. We're told that "Enoch walked with God" and God took him. I truly believe that in his own way Tony walked with God also, every step of the way. I just wanted to let his family know that I had the utmost respect for him and his faith. I know I am not alone in that regard.
