This is still surreal for me. We spoke only a week before you left this earth. We grew up together, literally, as we were next door neighbors. I remember you and my brother wearing masks and scaring the heck outta me at my house.
We stayed close as we grew up. You were my brother from another mother and I was your sister from another mister. We had each other’s back.
I will miss you fiercely and keep your memory alive Anth. I love you my brother.
Always & Forever,
Melissa Spadaro and kids.
My condolences to the family. I Will remember Anthony for always being a kind and humble being. Fly high my brother! Your always will be in my heart my friend. I’ll miss you!
