RE: surgery/Tony

Amen to that Theresa. One of the truly finest gentlemen I've ever
encountered he is. I may use the seeds he sent me here not too long ago
to do a "Tony flowerbed" in Spring. I think he'd like that idea....

>It has been so difficult for me to see him in this condition, but the drugs

>Last night there were 20 adult friends and some children here filling our

>another the violin.    It was wonderful for all of us and especially for
>Tony.  His little toes just kept time with the music and he relished in all
>these wonderful friends doing this for him.  They trimmed his Christmas tree
>for him and decorated his front window (which was always a pride to him).  I

>We covet your prayers.
