Lucy, Cindy and family.
I am so sorry for the passing of Tony. He is now with no pain, strong and living with the Lord. My thoughts and prayers are with you. He was a great man, father and bus driver. I will miss him. Love Marc Fielden

Donna & David Lanners says:

Tony was a blessing to both of us and to everyone else whose life he touched. His life-long marriage to Lucy served as an inspiration to others and reminded us that sacrificial love is the surest path to joy in this world.

We are grateful for Tony’s role in our life and pray that God gives Lucy every consolation she seeks.

Words cannot express the pain we feel for Lucy’s loss, and we join our prayers to hers. May God grant eternal rest unto Tony and let perpetual light shine upon him.

Yours in Christ,
Donna & David
