Anthony was affectionately known by his loved ones as 'Abby'. Abby enjoyed spending time with family and friends. Often you would find Abby and Juanita in the malls, at ballgames, visiting family and friends and let us not forget BINGO! They shared a special bond, often calling each other 'Best Friend'.
