    While working at PNPD, no matter the time of the day or night, Tony would always be there as a backup. He was such a special friend and always had a smile. He was someone you could always count on.

    Nadine, so sorry for the loss of your brother, Tony. We have known you both all your life. Our parents went dancing together when we were small at the Rodair Club. We would come to your house to stay sometimes and some family friend would babysit us. You we we little.. Last time we saw you both was at Jessie Maxwells retirement party from the VA at the old Sandersons restaurant. Once I read this in the paper I had to contact you. I know you will miss him so much. Our thoughts are with you. ✝✝

    Mr. Cormier or neighbor as we called him was a kind soul. He would always stop and check on me and the kids. He never did mind when they were loud and obnoxious. He always showed interest in them. They loved seeing his truck come down the road and would wave or when he would stop to talk they'd jump up and talk to him. I was going through some tough times and he always had a kind word and listening ear. He will be very missed and my heart is broken for all who knew him. He was one of a kind and a wonderful person. I'm praying for his family and friends. Rest in peace. We'll miss you.

    I met Mr.Cormier at Judge Burnetts court. I was there for a speeding ticket and had recently lost my son. He was the nicest man. Took time to calm me down and off his condolences to me and made me feel so much better about being there. I now offer my condolences to u all for this wonderful kind man.
