Tribute & Message From The Family

Loving Son, Brother, Uncle, Nephew

Episode XL

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...40 years to be exact, the Force saw fit to give us Anthony Michael Santora (Tony). Everyone that knew Tony realized he had his favorite movies aliens Jaws silver bullet and Star Wars. Basically, anything sci-fi or fantasy or just plain nerdy. He loved sharks, enough that we've thought of feeding some of him to them. He loved the drums and could be heard late at night (all hours of the night actually. Tony was nocturnal, possibly part cat in his DNA, he'd think that's cool!) banging away to Buddy Rich, Bonham, or AC/DC. He was a big guy with an even bigger heart (he cried when Luke saw Leah after so many years in Star Wars. He said it was a brother sister thing). He loved his family more than anything. That's what we should remember him for. Because when it all comes down to it, family is the most important thing in this crazy world we live in. He was as stubborn as Han Solo, but the Rancor himself could not snarl and roar like Tony's big, beautiful heart. We all know he would be there for anyone of us in a heartbeat. But today...

There is unrest galaxy. General Anthony Santora, a powerful Jedi, and his Wookie co-pilot, Rusty, are on a mission to rescue their two friends, Duke and Ripley, from the clutches of the evil empire. In a daring maneuver in the silver Spectre, General Santora flies into the Death Star using only the Force to rescue his two friends and puts an end to the Empire for good and brings peace to the Galaxy!!!

Real or not, it doesn't feel right that Tony- a son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin, and friend, is not here with us physically today, but he will forever be in our thoughts and especially in our hearts. Godspeed Tony, and MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU!

We all love you!
