    Dear Kathy, We were so sorry to read about Anthony in this morning's paper. We have fond memories of our times together at Thalian Hall as ushers. We haven't been ushering lately so we didn't hear until today. Please call us if there is any way we can help out. Sincerely, Linda and Jack Anderson

    We know that this is a very difficult time for you Kathy, Nick and Claire. You're in our thoughts and prayers. One of the most wonderful memories we'll ever have of Anthony was this past year when he spent the night at our home. Especially in the morning when we hugged and were able to tell each other that I love you as we said good bye. Even though we did not see each other that often, we knew that he was always there and if we ever needed him, he would be there. Anthony was a wonderful brother and will be missed and loved always.

    To Kathy and Family - I am so shocked and saddened at the passing of Anthony. It seems barely a month since you and Anthony ushered at a Cinematique with me, and he seemed so healthy then. I am very sorry, Kathy and I do hope you and your family find condolence and peace in your fond memories of him. Sincerely Catherine Walters
