Jill, I have never met you but I feel like I know you. I watched Anthony’s Sermons every week for a good while now. I am so sorry that you did not have a longer marriage. Preacher Anthony was ready. I hope you have some peace in knowing that he is in heaven with his Savior. I’m praying for you as this has to be so hard.

Anthony was not only my co-worker but a very close and valued personal friend. Being sorry for the loss does not even begin to describe the the depth of my grief, but I know the grief I feel is just my love for Anthony with no other place to go. It was a sincere honor for me to have known him. He will be missed and never forgotten.

Jill, Mary, and the rest of the family//// I just can't let in sink in that Pastor Anthony is no longer on this Earth.. I know he is in Heaven walking and preaching on the streets of GOLD.. God had a plan for him to leave us early. We don't know what that plan was.. We do know we are heartbroken, not getting to spend more time with him... But, we also know we will see him again if we know that we know we are saved... Pastor Anthony, was a great preacher, loved listening to him... Jill may you and rest of the family find rest, peace, and most of all understanding that Anthony was was ready to go to his Heavenly home.... He will be missed everyday and the days and nights will be long and dark, but there is always light at the end of the tunnel.. Anthony had and will continue to have a special place in my HEART....
