wow, I am so sorry. I worked with Tony and played golf with him, little Bill and Honeybun Bill. Tony was always the same, just a good old fashioned boy, that treated everyone with respect. I am heart broken for Luanne and his family. May God comfort the family during this time and in the days ahead.

Ive known tony and louann all my life. Two terrific people. Just in the last year my sister linda lunsford and i have been cleaning tony and louanns house for them. We enjoyed talking about the good old days. It was sad when lou had to be put somewhere where she could get the help she needed. But understandable. Tony never was the same. He worried his self to death for sure. Knowing it would never be the same. Gonna miss tony. Loved him even if he was a tarheel fan. Im a duke fan myself. My prayers are with you all.
