I am very sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in the bibles words found at Revelation 21:4 “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Soon God will destroy death, and resurrect our loved ones who have died to an earth where there is no more pain. Please accept my condolences at this time.
Katy. I just heard about your husband passing away and I cant tell you how sorry I am. I am sure he is in a better place but ….I feel so bad tor you and the kids. One thing you have to know for sure is that your mom and dad met him on the other side. Please know I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.
I was looking for the notice of my former brother in law but sadly saw Tony’s name and photo. So sad to see Tony had passed. It was always a joy to visit with Tony when I’d take and/or pick up my daughters from when Tammy would babysit them at their home. My heart felt sympathies to Tony’s family and friends and their Concord Twp. neighbors as Tony was a friend to all.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Katy and family,
I know you do not know who I am, Tony’s dad and my dad (Walter Cupps) were first cousins, as children we had visited their home many times. Tony always had a great smile and personality. My Sister Sonja Cupps and I will be praying for you and your family in the days to come. Sincerely, Connie (Cupps) Roby
Katy, my heart goes out to you and the kids. Tony will be missed. Love you and will be praying for you all through this!
