To my dear sister-in-law Diane and my wonderful nieces and their families. I know that I was physically around through most of my life, but of the few times I did visit, I was fortunate enough to see how much love my brother had for all of you, and over the last couple years he got to know Tommy, your uncle in a special way. While he took care of his direct family, he always made time for us here in Michigan, even though it was via text messages or his loving and funny messages with images he shared to boost me up as I was going through bad times. When I think of Tony and Diane, I see in my minds eye, the most special couple and family I’ve ever meant. Diane, my sincerest condolences sister. If you need me to be out there to help, please let me know. Love, Wendy
