Let the memory of Anthony be with us forever
  • 21 years old
  • Born on December 17, 1990 in Elizabeth, New Jersey, United States.
  • Passed away on August 9, 2012 in University Hospital Newark, New Jersey, United States.

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Anthony Holmes, Jr., 21, born on December 17, 1990 and passed away on August 9, 2012. We will remember him forever. 

Anthony was known for his beautiful smile, handsome looks and awesome personality. Anything he could do for you, he would!  He was affectionately known as "Q" and "Lil Ant" by his family.  He was also known as "Ant Dolla" by his friends.

He was always funny and playful. You could always count on him to brighten your day and to put a smile on your face.  He always had a bright smile, even if he was having a bad day. Anthony loved playing video games, watching sports and hanging out with his friends.

It has been 4 years but it still feels like yesterday. I continue to pray regularly and know because of my deep relationship with God and the faith he has instilled in me that our family will have justice here on earth and beyond. Rest peacefully my angel, your auntie loves and misses your presence dearly. Gone but never forgotten! Love you nephew!

This doesn't get easier nephew I've just learned to trust in God and have faith that you lived the full life that was part of his plan. Today makes 25. You would've been celebrating your 25th birthday and I can only imagine what it would have been like, literally! Auntie LOVES YOU. Continue to rest peacefully until the time comes.

Not a day goes by that auntie isn't thinking about or missing you! Love you nephew! They hurt hasn't gone away, I've just learned to mask it and deal with it by the grace of God. Rest peacefully because the eternal life that is a head is much greater and I will see you again!

God bless my homie. I remember when we met in middle school, & we cracked jokes & laughed all the way to high school lol. I miss your laughter, your jokes, your company & just how kind you were. You are missed & you won't be forgotten by the multitude of people you touched. I know God has you in his hand, & I hope I can make you proud on this Earth. RIP Ant, peace

Two years feel like an eternity. I'd give anything just to have you back here with me. You were taken away from us without any warning. Every time the same date and time our family starts mourning. You were a ray a light to all, you were our sunshine. I wish I could turn back the time and press rewind. And even though it hurts so bad to relive this time again. I thank The Lord each day for the memories since you are now our Angel up in heaven. There is not a day that goes by I don't miss you nephew. For our own selfish reasons we want you here in this cruel world, but I know where you rest today there are no worries. Love you nephew, auntie misses you!

Though I never had the chance to meet you, you are in our hearts because your father is family. Your picture rests on our family room shelf and you are thought of whenever I walk past. Happy Birthday in Heaven Lil Ant and may your spirit and memories ease the pain in the hearts of your loved ones. * The Pritchett's

23rd anniversary of your life and you not being here hurts but I understand and know why. There isn't a day that passes I don't miss seeing you or getting that "Wussup Auntie" text. Love you nephew, you were and will always be our first everything.

Nephew it's been a year to date but a year seems like yesterday. If it wasn't for God and the faith I have in him, I don't know how I would turn each second into a minute, minute into hour and hours into days of living with out you here. Although you are not here in the physical sense, I know you walk with me daily in spirit and I carry you on my shoulder daily. Love & Miss You Dearly!

I can't say Happy Birthday because I know you're in a place where happiness is ever lasting. It still seems so unreal that you are not here with us. I really miss you nephew and there isn't a day that goes by you're not on my mind. This is the first of a lifetime of your birth dates that I have to live off the memory of calling you every year to stop by and get your birthday cash. IMU!

I miss you terribly Ant. I regret not being a close with you as I should have. We were the same age and could/should have spent more time together. I am sooooo so so happy that you got to bless everyone with your presence in my sweet 16. I look at the pictures all the time. I also sleep with a pic of you near my bed every night. I'll never forget the times we had. I love you cousin !!

I NEVER thought I'd be experiencing this. Anthony was definitely GOLDEN! Anyone who crossed paths with this young man was made to feel like family! I never seen this young man angry. He had this infectious laugh and SMILE. Whenever he saw you, he'd say, ”What's up, cuz!” YES, he's GONE TOO SOON...& will be sorely MISSED. Love you ALWAYS, Anthony! <3

Nephew there are so many things I have told you but so many things I will never get to say. My hurt aches every hour of the day you are not here. I know you are in a better place and understand why God stepped in at that very moment and saved you, your heart and soul. For that I am thankful. Rest easy my sweet ANGEL, you will forever remain in my heart. I LOVE & MISS YOU! (Tears)
