    Your family was truly blessed to have such a genuinely kind, devoted man. I did not know Tony that long, but it was very clear to everyone around him that he lived for his family, especially his wife and children. He was so enthusiastic and funny that it was impossible not to like him. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers in this trying time.

    To The Family. I am shocked and saddened by your loss. I did not know Tony that well, but will miss him scaling me in at Colonial. Of the many times I had gotten a chance o talk to him, I cannot say any negative thing about him. I will never forget the time when I was at the scales and the system was down and everybody went to the Colonial Breakroom to eat Bojangles. I was going to sitting in the truck for awhile. They invited me to come up and join them. In the breakroom, I got to sit directly across from Tony and watch him eat. He could eat ! We got to talk a little as we licked our fingers and drank sweet tea. He was eating, but at the same time was helping anyone that came in also get them a plate. He could get along with everybody it seemed. His co-workers and all the truck drivers will miss him. I am still in shock to hear of this tradegy. I wish I could have gottten to know him better. We never know when it is Our Time to leave God's Earth, but to the Believer's, we are ready. Jeff " Sting Ray " Blake 910-512-6363 cell R.

    Tony, you will be greatly missed. What a witness for the Lord you were. You were an example of a true Christian. You lived it daily. I remember Bible School up at Cherokee several years ago and you went to every camper in the camp ground to try and get kids to come to Bible School. My thoughts and prayers go out to your loving family. I know you are resting in the arms of Jesus. This candle will burn in remembrance of you.
