    My dear cousin Tony was loved by my family very much. My Father used to send a taxi to there home in Detroit to bring them all the way to our house in Troy. We had so much fun playing with them. Tony was always a fun guy to be with. His love of fishing and teaching any little child in our family how to do it right. I know he is Heaven giving Robin Williams some pointers. He is loved by many what a gift he was. Gonna miss you cuz
