    Tony was our mail man for seems like most of my chilhood years, growing up on Ave. D in Nederland. My parents would often talk to him as he would always park in our yard on his route. He was very well liked and known in our household. Saddened to hear of his passing. My heart felt condolences to all of his family.


    To the family and friends of Tony I’m so heart broken to know Tony had to leave us. I liked this man so very much as many have. He was my mail carrier for years. He truly loved it when I baked my special cake just for him. He even came to my wedding. What a very special person. Tony, will be missed so much. He was loved dearly by many people. We will see you again Tony.

He was the best mailman friend you could set you clock by him if he saw you in town he would speak. He will be missed by every one. Rest in sweet peace Mr Tony until we meet again. Fly high
