    My sincere sympathies to his family for the loss of my cousin. My name is Elena. My mother Digna is now resting in peace. My aunt Concha, Tony’s mom, was her sister. As the years hv passed by they are all reunited in the spiritual world together again. 🙏 I spent a few summer’s at 100 Street. Tony was always respected in the community and loved his family. He was a force to be reckoned with, respected and always lifting peoples energies. May he rest in Peace. My sincere condolences and blessings to his immediate family. He will now be received and welcomed from his birth family and ancestors.

    Love and Light Always,
    Elena (Digna & Willow’s daughter/Tony’s cousin)

    My heartfelt condolences to his children. My cousin Tony was a sweet gentle soul. As a young girl I remember when he’d return home from an adventure and I was lucky enough to be at my aunt’s house, I would sit in wonder listening to his stories. My favorite was when he photographed Elvis because it made a little girl from the Bronx believe anything is possible!! When he married Jocelyn and ultimately settled in Cape Coral, my son Genel and I would visit as often as we could from West Palm Beach that was an adventure for me to drive from the east coast to the west, not Elvis but an adventure nonetheless.

    I witnessed him enjoy the simple pleasures at home with his family that he felt so much pride for, what a man!! Cous you will be missed but never forgotten, until we meet again!! Always in my heart, Pami
