I see that Dad is with you now.
He was just missing you so much, but he was called up by God for he knows how much you need him! Watch over Dominick and I with all your love. Now go get a run ‍ in with your father and maybe play a little chess. I wish Heaven had visiting hours cuz I miss you so much Tony and Mario.

Your Mom is taking deep breaths as she writes these words to you, my beloved son. Please let go and be at peace - I am trying my hardest to be fine. All I care about is for you to be able to rest in peace and let your sorrow end right now. Enjoy your time with family and old friends and ask them to watch over Dad, Dominick and I. I will live my life forever enjoying every minute that I have with Dominick, as I know he does with me and as he did with you. Every minute is precious, I know that now. Be happy, my boy. I'll be patient and await the day I can run to you and give you my hugs and kisses. I'm storing them up, you better have a lot of time to talk and laugh and love with me again. xoxoxo To the Moon & back...MOM

My strongest memory of Tony is when you left San Diego. I remember hugging him so tightly and crying a bit.

Love,

Tony was one of the most gentle souls. I loved talking to him; he was so intelligent and would listen so intently. He was very self-effacing.

When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure. 

Love,
Aunt Mary Ellen

I am advocating for you, Tony. I hope that whatever I do to make life easier for people with mental health issues (especially for Asperger's) ,however great or small, will help someone to stay alive and be able to seek happiness and fulfillment and to be able to pursue life in as comfortable a mindset as is possible. Forever in my heart, and thoughts Your Momma

My sweet Son ~ Sometimes I just look up, smile and think "I know that was you". I'll see you down the road where we can finally hug and kiss and laugh together once again. Missing you always.
All My Love Forever,
Mom

his Life

Early Life with Tony

As a very young toddler Tony was a quiet and shy boy.  His special interests were Duplo's, Matchbox cars, Thomas the Tank and Brio tracks and puzzles. Tony loved playing quietly for hours lining up his cars, building things with Duplo's, and setting up all his Thomas the Tank trains on the Brio track and creating little scenarios.  By 3 years old he loved playing pre-school.  By that, I mean pulling out all his Scholastic Learning books with stay-at-home Mom, Pegi, and practicing letters, numbers and pick the different object, face or shape.  He loved sitting down to have a book read to him by Dad and Mom and sometimes at sleepovers with "Dietsch" reading to him before bed. Tony enjoyed his little pool in our backyard in San Diego, CA.  He enjoyed play-dough, playing in the sand and going down the slide at the parks.  When Tony was three years old he gained a little brother, Dominick, who he loved having around.  Actually, he loved being an instigator, putting funny clothes on his little brother, giving him toys and quickly taking them away. Tony had boxes of Color-Forms and sometimes "decorated" his brother's face with them so Mommy would laugh.  They became best buds as they grew older.  

School Days

Tony did very well in grammar school and loved his teachers and classmates. He had a handful of friends who had the same interests and often had them to the house and loved to go visit them.  Most of his little friends were quiet and shy just like him.  He joined the Cub Scouts and played soccer but didn't hold an interest. He preferred a smaller group where he could build things, play with science kits, remote control Monster Trucks and dinosaurs.  Tony loved reading and spent a lot of time reading The Boxcar Children,  The Hardy Boys, Goosebumps and later on Harry Potter.  Mom thought it was cool when the teacher in the next grade up brought her 4th graders' new Scholastic order form over to Tony as he was an advanced reader.  He was sent to Gifted and Talented classes but didn't last long because it was in the High School and he had to be bussed over in the middle of the day. He was too intimidated and didn't quite understand why his reading/learning time with his schoolmates was interrupted.
