    I met Snooky when I was 7. My Mom married his Uncle George, We moved to NJ and he was super nice to me and made me feel welcome to his parents home. I used to watch him fold his newspapers while I told him my little kid stories. He would laugh and laugh. We left NJ when I was 11 but Snooky never left my heart.

    Dear Helen and family, I am the nurse who cared for Anthony during his last hours and I wanted to tell you that he was treated with compassion and respect. He did not suffer. There was no pain, and he drifted away very peacefully. He came in with some difficulty breathing, but that was quickly corrected. He held my hands and told me that he had a really good life and he spoke of you, Helen. He said you were always there for him and he was happy. As quickly as he recovered, he became tired, and Dr. Steifel and I did not leave his side. But I held his hand and stroked his face and talked to him, telling him you were on your way and that you love him very much, but don’t wait if it’s time to let go. He looked in my eyes and squeezed my hands. He closed his eyes and drifted off. I wanted to be sure you all knew that he was ready and did not suffer, but passed in a lovely way that was an unspoken, emotional experience for the three of us. In the short amount of time I spent with him, I could tell he was somebody special. Reading his obituary solidified my feelings. He touched my heart that day and I am grateful to have been the one chosen to be there for him. Kindest sympathy to your family.
