I'm so sorry for your loss. It really means a lot that you took the time to post. I would hope my wife would do the same if something like this happened to me. I didn't know Tony personally, but I have benefitted greatly from his posting here.

You and yours are in our prayers!

I too share your loss and can only pray that God helps you recover from this terrible loss of your Soul Mate. I never met Tony but I have read many of his post and enjoyed his insight on the controllers perspective.
I am sure with the spirit that Tony showed we will see him in heaven some day
May you and your family know that he was really loved by this group of pilots all flying their dreams.

Our deepest condolances to you and your family

Default Tears For Tony

Amy, words are hard to come by. so glad you were able to spend the years with your special sole mate. my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

One More Roll

We toast our hearty comrades who have fallen from the skies, and were gently caught by God's own hand to be with him on High.

To dwell among the soaring clouds they've known so well before. From victory roll to tail chase, at heaven's very door.

As we fly among them there, we're sure to head their plea. To take care my friend, watch your six, and do one more roll for me.

This is very sad to hear. Tony contacted me a few times over the last two years because he was experiencing similar issues with his MT prop that I had dealt with. He was gracious to speak with and I finally had a chance to meet him in person at the RV flyin at DMW a couple of months ago. A super nice guy who will be missed by all.

Mrs. Kelly,

I hope the happy memories of Tony bring you and your family some comfort in this unimaginably difficult time. We will all be thinking of you, your family and Tony. We really do remember those flyers who go before us. And Tony will be with all of us until we each fly west.
