My brother goes to the Naval Academy and was good friend with Tony. He had just seen him the night before the crash. I wish the best for his family and to the his friends!

Dear Mr. Valliere,

please accept my sincere condolences on the passing of Tony. I was visiting my son David - also a 2nd classman on Saturday and heard about Tony at the Chapel on Sunday.

If you could provide me your address, I would like to send something in his memory. My e-mail is setyon@aol.com.

Sincerely,

I came upon the horrible accident scene and saw Tony. Something happened to me: I felt an instant connection to him. I know Tony is in Heaven and this is why a connection was made, to give me faith that there really is a God and Heaven above. God Bless you, Tony, and your family. I have created a roadside memorial for you, my friend, for others to pay respects to.

Tony, the cross I placed at the scene is still standing strong since you left us. My daughter and I pass there several times a week and we speak up to you in Heaven. I hope you hear us. Beautiful plants grow there that the County maintains, yet your cross remains untouched. God Bless you, my friend. You will always be my guardian angel.
