    My deepest condolences to you and your family Gloria. I pray God continues to give you all strength and courage to carry on during this time. He will never leave you or forsake you. 🙏🏾🙌🏾❤️

  • Charles (Mr. IFS)

    My condolences go out to Tony’s family. What a compassionate wonderful human being Tony was. He was always kind, positive and up lifting. I worked for General Dynamics too for 35 years and although Tony and I didn’t know each other well we’d see each other in passing and there was always small talk and he would brighten my day. Just look at Tony and you can see all of those wonderful qualities, he was a one of a kind. A man that you can be very proud of and he will be missed.
