Sharon & children, so very sorry to hear about Anthony. He was such a good friend and will be sorely missed by all who knew him. I was so looking forward to our next class reunion, if for no other reason than to see his smiling face and to talk with him. Sorry I couldn't be there for his service, but with the virus and the weather it was impossible, but I am with you in heart, mind and soul. my love to you all. Janice Perry Layne Tschirhart.
