Tony was one of my best friends in elementary school.

Cherri (Hunter-Northy), Terry, Tony and I spent much time together at one another's houses, especially during 4th, 5th and 6th grades.

Tony, when talking about you and your brother (which one had to do since you did EVERYTHING together), Terry's name always came first (Terry and Tony vs. Tony and Terry ;). I think that was because Terry was actually born first but I would have to verify that with your parents...

While we did not communicate much during our teenage years, I always considered you and your brother a special part of my "growing-up" years.

When I hear the song "Dust in the Wind", which was played at your funeral, it reminds me how much I still miss you and look fondly on our friendship from those early days.

I remember the shock I felt at the news, I also remember how anxious I felt waiting for the news to come on again because I did not want to believe my ears.
