"Hi Tony- I think about you often and have fond memories of working with you while in the group home. It has always amazed me how from the day you got to the group home, you told everyone you wnated to be a marine for our country. We had so many talks about so many things, over the years, I always hoped secretly that you wouldnt get into the military.....I remember one day asking you, "what happens if we (usa) go to war? You looked at me and smiled and said then you would go to protect us. I always believed that some how you knew what your destiny was going to be. I watched you grow from about age 12-18 and I am so proud that I was able to be there for you and that you sought out your brother and then your mother once you turned 18....with all that you had been through, you were never sad, never mean, always pleasant and always got the highest "level" in the house. I enjoyed being able to take you for your "level 5 award", lol the highest award there was in the house, and now, you have gotten the very highest award and I know that you are in heaven, happy and content for what you achieved, i just wish it did not have to end like this. You were always an amazing kid, strong, motivated, confident, even with all you had been through, I am sure the angels in heaven are happy to have you.
Love, Diane
