Thinking of you at this difficult time Ruthie. Tony was so much like his Uncle Eddie full of life and making people laugh. It must be in the Suares DNA because his cousin Buddy is the same way. Sorry for your loss. Sending hugs 🤗 and prayers your way.

Thank you for your friendship, your fellowship and your motivation. Every time we would be in each other's company no matter where it was, you would offer me sound advisement and finish our interactions with a joke and that infectious smile. Thank you for being a shining light in a lot of the lives you blessed with your humor and loving, caring ways. May memories of you, my brother, always be an inspiration to all you knew. Rest in everlasting peace.

I am so sorry my friend, we go all the way back to grammar school. We had so many good times at club, Jr. Progressive's dances, Tony was the dancer of the night, he specialty "jiter-bug" he could dance all night and we lined up to dance the next one with him. He will be greatly missed by all, that forever smile on his face and how he loved people. My heart breaks for you, but you are one of the strongest people I know and God will get you through this. Love you Ruthie. "Laney"
