I send my condolences and prayers to the family. Anthony was a great kid. I went to school with him and have hung out with him numerous times. Tho I have not seen nor talked to him since around 2016,17. He had a good head on his shoulders, knew what direction he need to start working toward and proceeded to do so. He was an all around great person. I'm deeply sorry for your loss. May He rest in Peace and keep watch over the family. -Kehler Johnson.
