"Dear Jess & family,
So sorry for your loss. I know you expected it -- but you never expected it. When the instructions said "leave a memory" -- I think of all the times we'd laugh in the driveway (prior to your driving days) -- and how proud he was of you and all your accomplishments -- but moreso the Godly lady you were. The greatest day -- was while we were getting you ready and how excited he was to walk you down the aisle :) Be comforted in God's love for you and that your dad knew and loved the Lord. Hope to see you soon! Love you!"
"Tony, my baby brother, your integrity and kindness has always inspired me to be a better person. It has been an honor and a privilege to be your sister. I will cherish all of our memories that we had as siblings. You are the bravest warrior I know. I will love and miss you forever."
"Tony is my cousin. My wife's favorite stroy of the the Larsen and Pizzano children growing up was a Thanksgiving gathering when the older boys were downstairs playing poker and Tony, 10 years younger and full of playful yet annoying energy was bugging us. As teenager we did the reasonable thing and humanely tied Tony to one of the beds allowing the game to proceed. Later my father came do to check on us and Tony realizing that his being tied up would not be well recieved by parential authorities, tried hard to use the blankets to hide the rope. He didn't want to get us in trouble. He wasunsuccessful, all us older boys were yelled at and ordered immediately to untie Tony and never do it again.
His positive energy and wonderful spirit will be missed"
"Tony was just a natural all around good guy, one of the true ones. We were so lucky he met Carrie and came into our lives. We were blessed with his friendship and now he has new friends with God. Thank you Tony for everything.
And For Carrie my favorite quote from the Little Prince - “You - you alone will have the stars as no one else has them...In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night...You - only you - will have stars that can laugh.”
― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, El Principito"
"Absent from the body is present with the Lord.
Tony is in heaven with God, the Lord will never leave us alone. He is always with us. Tony is a citizen in heaven where he is happy.
When we turn to god most amazing this happen. When our foundation crumbles if we turn to god he listens to us. The Lord will show himself to those who ask. The Lord knew Tony would leave this earth because of cancer in his body. He gave Tony a loving wife to help him through this hard time. He knew Carrie would love and care for him until he entered heaven. Carrie was with Tony when he took his last breath as she told him how she loves him.
Tony prayed to God to show him the plan for his life. He is an inspiration to all who knew him. His body became weak, but his faith became stronger in the Lord. Tony was not bitter when he became ill. He trusted in the Lord and thanked him for every day he was allowed to live on earth. Tony said God never promised life would be perfect.
I believe the Lord said to Tony “Well done good and faithful servant. I welcome you to the kingdom of heaven. You will never thirst again and you will have ever lasting life.”
I miss Tony, but my only comfort is in Christ Jesus. We will all be united again in heaven.
Our God is awesome! I stand in the truth of God.
That doesn’t mean we won’t suffer or have pain. It does mean the Lord will be with us as we miss our friend Tony."
"My brother, Tony, was born the youngest of six, three months after the death of our father. He was like a gift from heaven, our little baby boy. And that he remained throughout his life, a gift to all of us who knew and loved him. He was gentle, kind, and caring always. He had a huge generous heart and gave to all. He wanted to live and enjoy his family and gave it a tremendous, courageous fight. Although he was suffering, he kept his beautiful smile and kind spirit until the end. We are grateful that he is not suffering anymore, but his loss is profound, and only time can soften the pain of his loss. I am so grateful that he was my brother. He loved Jesus with all his heart, and I know that he is with him now."
"Though we haven't seen each other in 20 years I still have great memories of Tony while I lived in Snoqualmie, WA. Tony was a great neighbor and a great friend. Always willing to help out with projects I got in way over my head with even though he had enough to do at home... Tony and his big brother Al were my hunting and fishing buddies when I moved to Washington. Always made me feel welcome. My heart is heavy knowing you are gone but inside I rejoice at the thought of joining you someday in Heaven. Love ya Tony!"
"My love for you has no boundaries. I am forever grateful for your love, your strength, your guidance, your kisses, your hugs. I thank God every day for bringing you into my life. You are always in my heart and I miss your sweet lips, your beautiful blue eyes, your kind words, and the many improvements and surprises you filled my life with. I know how much you like working with your hands and puttering around, constantly keeping busy, and am comforted by the fact that God is keeping you busy in Heaven. Thank you for creating a beautiful paradise in my backyard and home. I feel your presence everywhere. You are the love of my life and I adore you. Your loving wife, Carrie"
