Tony and Linda have been friends of mine since 1961. I have so many memories of the times we spent together in person or on the phone. I will miss his big smile and funny stories. I am so thankful that God brought both of them into my life.

Anthony was one of my favorite cousins! He always made the Gillen Reunion a Family Event. His Big Smile, laughter, humor, whit describes Tony! Anthony loved our Annual Reunions and work hard on organization. He loved Family! He always made you feel, you were important! I loved his smile and He was always wearing it! I always looked forward in hearing his stories at the Reunion! I never met anyone who did not love Tony!!!
