"Anthony,

Bro every year that passes I think of you and the sacrifice you made severing our country, I can't thank you enough. The Road Dawgs miss you. Budd, we will see you, when we see you. Be strong"
Barry Wisecup of Beavercreek, Ohio

"Tony, Today is January 21st 2015. It has been almost 10 years since God decided it was time for you to be with him. As I started cleaning and re-organizing in my office, I wiped a speck of dust off of your flag case, looked at the picture of us horsing around at grandma's: you are thought of today. You are thought of daily. I miss all the times we spent together, all of the talks we had; and believe me, we REALLY NEED TO TALK!!! Sometimes I wish I could have you back for one more day, just one more..

The kids are growing up too fast. Julia, yes, sweet baby Julia, will soon be 11 years old. She is so smart, and talented. She has qualified for gifted and talented, and is in Quest. She is anxiously awaiting the day she will be taller than me, which will be sooner rather than later. Toni is growing like a weed too, and will soon be 7. She only knows you from the pictures she sees and the stories I tell her, but she still loves you.

You would be proud of me.. I am a runner!! Yes, I know you would have never imagined that, but I am. I run all of the time. I've completed two half-marathons!! You were my inspiration, and the motivation that kept me going. YOU always told me I could do anything, and never gave up on me: you believed in me. I love you forever and always, little bro. You are Truly missed!"
Amanda Jones Howard of Pickens, SC USA
