I met Tony after I had retired in 1991 and started attending the (then) semi-annual CIDAA meetings and later the annual meetings. When I was President of the CIDAA, I sought his guideance and advise, during a period when a non-qualified person attempted to join our organization. He was a truely remarkable person. May God bless Tony and his family.
