First I would like to express my sincere condolences for your loss. I worked with both Tanika and Tony, and it was always a joy to be around them, especially when Tony got his joke on. I missed working with him when he left the store, but even more so now, and he was loved and liked by his 131 family. We miss Tony! I miss you!
Hope Jones, October 9, 2021 I pray for peace and comfort for you and your loved ones at this difficult time and offer my condolences to you all. So many things I could say about Ant, and it saddens me to hear about this. I don’t think I’ve met someone who made me laugh more than he has. He was hard on the outside but such a great person on the inside. I truly am going to miss all the laughs we shared, and all the random text messages we’d send each other. Watching today’s baseball game just wasn’t the same without us talking our smack to one another. It was an honor knowing you Ant and may you Rest In Peace. Til we meet again!
