  1. I know Anthony’s family. I’ve known him since he was a little child. I hope the other boys recover soon. People please pray for these boys families. I will see Anthony’s mom when she gets home.

  2. Anthony no one could light up a room the way you did with your smile. I can’t believe you’re gone. There’s so much I want to say but I can’t find the words to do so.
