  5. Dear Nora, Julia, Annie & all my cousins,

    I am so sad to hear of your/our loss. A part of me will never believe Tony is gone. My memories of him & all of you are etched in my mind with fun times gathered in the kitchen, Tony cooking, singing, humming a tune, a 1000 stories & ways to describe the rain. Long walks rain or shine, exploring the country side & visiting all of the Kelly’s. And Tony running up every church stairway to drop a coin in the poor box.

    His trademarks, a man of faith; never an ill word, intelligent, loyal, a keen sense of adventure & humor, a hard worker, kind, generous & humble. He knew how to both work & laugh, to appreciate the joys of family, friends, free time & the beauty of nature. I will miss my uncle Tony.

    Our grief is real. But our shared faith reassures me that Tony is now where we all want to be & we will be reunited.
    May the sun shine on you in a warm embrace & if it rains, may it be a soft rain to wash away your tears.
    May God hold you in the palm of his hands.
    With Love, Gwyn (O’Brien) Robinson, Julia’s daughter.
