My deepest and sincerest condolences to Anthony’s family, friends, and loved ones. I cannot imagine the pain and devastation his mother must be experiencing right now. This never should have happened and I hope there will be justice for Anthony. His family would greatly appreciate any help with the costs they’ll now accrue from Anthony’s funeral and burial expenses due to his unexpected passing. Fly high with the angels precious boy.
