Melissa and Family,
I was deeply sadden by the news of Tony. Melissa I feel like I knew him because you spoke of him so often and had the pleasure of meeting him once. You were such a patient, loving, supportive wife. I know it is difficult right now, but I pray that the Lord give you the message that you did all you could when you had the time to do it. 4 Years are short I know but you were there for him every minute and that to be praised and I know he appreciated. RIP Tony till we all met again.

I would like to extend my sincerest sympathy to the Conwell family. Our loving God keeps us all in his memory and promises to reunite us with our loved ones. But until then we still have to cope with our grief. Hopefully this verse from the Bible brings your family a measure of comfort... Isaiah 25:8 (JW.org) ~ The Johnson Family
