How do you describe : That feeling of loss
 When words will not cover
And you are blindsided by the fact
That someone you loved is just gone!
 I can still see you  In my minds eye
 Smelling of fresh cut wood and speaking in laughter and tears
 You were Brother Tony to us, one who loved to joke, who told story of being a medic in "Nam" with a voice full of tears
 You could just as easily joke with me, or comfort me in my tears
 When Mimmi died, you and Wernau were two of the first people by my side.I looked to you in many ways, Like one would look to a Father
 You would celebrate the milestones with me, like book publications and even the simpler things, you were a woodworker, a handyman, a gentleman, a loving husband, a Father, a great friend So much more
 You and your wife Wernau will always carry a special place in my heart and as you are remembered by us and by others, we will remember you with bittersweet smiles, knowing you are at rest now I am sure talking with Jesus and hanging out with Brother Lou!
One day we will see you again, and I am sure you will make us laugh with some silly joke, or cry when you spoke of the service to your country, or the state of our nation.

And as I promised one day I will have that cowboy book out, a special memory of you, though I am certainly no Lois L'amour, but you always believed I could write anything.
