Hello Anthony, you are certainly forever missed.
It's ten years now since we spoke with you and heard your voice and saw your face- positive up to the end. I don't sit as much and ponder the pain, the illness and the dreadful 'phone call telling me you were gone but try and recall good times which also help me.
Time is a strange thing and ten years you have been gone yet sometimes it seems like a few months, but thank goodness for memories we can recall.
    Can't wait to see you again and also the many family members and friends who have passed on. I'm sure you are loving and taking care of Leo, Wheezy, Shorty and Chi Chi very well.
           Until next time my eternal friend. Kevin.

My dear dear friend. Today is your earthly Birthday and I celebrate you and remember the wonderful time we spent in Salt Lake and Portland. Now you are celebrating in heaven with your parents and other family members and friends having fulfilled your earthly mission.
You are still very missed; your laugh, your artistic flair, your adventurous nature, even your cooking.
You were remembered whilst visiting the Portland Grotto recently, but remembered very often anyway.
Happy Birthday Anthony, with love from your eternal friend Kevin.

Dear eternal friend Anthony. It's been so long since I saw you but I remember December 10th 2010 being at work and getting the call that you had passed!! Even through all the ill health, the challenges and worry I still didn't believe it would happen and was preparing to see you that afternoon. Sorry I didn't stay the night and be there, many other things filled my life at that time but Heavenly Father took away your pain. Time does soften the blow and I am grateful it did help with the awful pain of you not being here.
  You will always be missed. Love, Kevin.

Hi my dearest friend. It's your earthly Birthday here and I'm sure you are with your family, friends and loved one's while we remember you here.
It's been so long since we celebrated your Birthday here but I will always cherish my time with you Anthony.
Still miss you so much but feel you close.
        Sending love, your dear friend Kevin.

Hello dearest friend. Time seems to be going by so fast-8 years since I got the call on my early work shift that you had gone. I cried for days and it hurt for years. It hurt too to see you suffer but you tried amazingly to keep going for those of us who loved you. You found so much strength from day to day and never complained until Heavenly Father called you home.
          Still miss you my friend. Kevin.

Happy Birthday Anthony, my eternal friend.
It isn't quite as heart-wrenching as it used to be to see your picture here or hear the sad music but it doesn't mean it is easy that you are not in my life making more memories and that you are not still missed terribly.
We have wonderful memories but you were taken too soon from all our lives and it left a huge empty space and now it is almost 8 years since you left.
I know you are loving every second in heaven in your beautiful home with your many loved ones. The world can't hurt you any more my friend.
            Love always, Kevin.x

My dear dear friend Anthony.
You are still in my heart and I think of how different my life (and the lives of others) would have been with you here with your love and kindness and the special talents you possess like beautifying the homes you have lived in. Now you are in the most beautiful home imaginable and I can't wait to be there with you: no more sadness, tears, or going out again.
    Thank you for the very special times on earth we shared together-never to be forgotten and neither will you be!
          Love, Kevin.x

Hello my dearest friend. Seems like the time-6 years, has gone by so quickly yet it seems so very long since I saw you and heard your voice.
I can recall so much about our time together but at least have my memories and many pictures to remember you by. It's still hard living without you and so I look forward to the day I embrace you again my beautiful friend and to be close and loving friends for ever next time.
    You will never be forgotten only missed so very much.
               Kevin.

Tony, Miss you so much ! Someday we will see each other again. That will be such a wonderful day. You were such a caring,loving person. The world lost an amazing person, but God wanted his angel back. Wish we had reached Portland in time ! I guess it wasn't meant to be. Tried to be there for Kevin, but he wants nothing to do with us. I really tried,you know that. Love you to infinity and beyond my Little Bro . Until we see each other again please give all our loved ones hugs and kisses. Have to go before I start bawling.

Dearest Anthony,
You are always loved. I think about you all the time, and you visit my dreams once in a while. I can feel that you are at peace now, which is something you wanted so much. Thinking of you on your day of birth (Oct 8th) and always.
Love Jen

Dearest friend Anthony. Seeing the 'forevermissed' email tribute in my email makes me happy yet sad because I see your picture again and read notes about you and the emptiness and sadness of not having you here takes over once again. It seems so long ago that you were here-oh dear.
Life will never be the same with you not here but each year brings us closer to each other and closer to coming back home. Tell your parents hello, Christine too, my brother Brian, my sister Anita, my parents and family, and your family.
We had a wonderful 11plus years, if it weren't so it wouldn't hurt as bad.
Forever missed! Love, Kevin.

Tony,
 I miss you so much ! I wish you were here to talk to. My life has been turned upside down. Half the kids hate me and I think the others just tolerate me. My heart broke when you died and every time I turn around someone else tries to see how much more I can take. Little brother I miss you so bad ! Can hardly wait to see you again. Love you to infinity and beyond ! Please watch over everyone !

Tony,you are missed so much. As you know I wrote a tribute and forgot to post it.You're probably laughing at me.You know what I wrote,so need to rewrite it.You know it still eats at me not getting there when I promised. You know why.Thank you for being such a great brother. We had some great adventures.I am glad that even though you were so sick in September, that we laughed so hard my stomach hurt over our escapades with the ice cream trike.I try to remember the great memories! Sometimes tears take over.Kevin has not really moved on.Please give him a nudge.Life is too short to not enjoy.As you know the family is pretty much falling apart,sad but true.Love you forever and a day! Until we meet again, I will always miss you.

I can't wait to see you again my eternal friend. You are happy now with your forever loved ones but not here with your loved ones who so miss you still. I still can't believe I can't just pick up the 'phone to call you and hear your voice and your laugh. You will always be with memory dearest friend.
I tried!
    My love to you and I so miss and loved the time you shared part of your life with me. xx. Kevin.
Posted by kevin langley on October 7, 2015
I can see your face, hear your voice and your laughter but can't hold you. You will be with me all my life until I come there and see you again my dear friend. It's been so long and I miss you so much and you still have your room in the home here.
            Love you my dearest friend.
                 Kevin.

It still eats away at me, that I didn't get there in time to help you, like you asked.Until we meet again.Love and miss you !!
Posted by kevin langley on December 3, 2014
My dearest friend. I still miss you so very much, am still so sorry for the pain you suffered without a word, but cherish what we accomplished together. It is still hard to believe you aren't coming back but I know you are waiting for us. Knowing you just 11 years was not long enough and I look so forward to having you as my special friend eternally.
   Thank you for sharing part of your life with me and teaching me so much in the time you were here and since you are gone.
       We love and miss you very much. xxx Kevin and family.

My dearest Anthony-where are you?? My heart is always heavy when i write here because it reminds me once again that you are not here with us. WE so miss you- you know that but sometimes you feel close, just a step away but we can't yet catch up. One day we will make that step into heaven and never leave you. Kevin.xxxxxxxxxxxx

Hello my Anthony. What a void you left in my life. It seems like an eternity since I saw your face and heard your voice and your laugh, and our home is much quieter now. You brought so much color and loves to those who knew you. I miss you decorating the house at Christmas, your music, your cooking, your silliness, and being loved.
 You deserve all the happiness and love Heaven is giving you now, along with your family there and I look forward to spending eternity with all my loved ones including you my beautiful eternal friend.
             Kevin.x

As I remembered you yesterday and all of the memories of the love you surrounded everyone with, my eyes filled with tears but then I looked up at the beautiful night sky and just knew you were always going to be around all of us and I am grateful for the chance to know someone as wonderful as you. I take comfort in knowing that I will see you again in the next life.

I can't believe it's already been a year... sometimes I don't even realize you're gone, I think of you back in Portland and know I'll see you again someday,
We all love you so much, please watch over us as we continue our journey, now coping with the wound of your absence.

Tio Tony and I sat and talked on Grandma and Grandpa's porch for over an hour before he was really sick, and I believe I got to know a little more about him and it is now a memory that will always be with me.
