"Uncle Tony," was a part of my life since birth as a neighbor, a member of Saint Mary's Antiochian Orthodox Church and uncle to my brother from a another mother, David Farra. He mentored us as altar boys and served as a role model to both of us. He always exemplified how his life of service to both the church and his country impacted on all he did. Tony always made it a point to visit me when he would visit his brother John in Silver Spring and made a congratulations visit when I first moved to Annapolis to show how proud he was of my buying a home. Each holiday he would send a Christmas Card and share with me what happened in the community and often sent Church Bulletins. His legacy wi...ll live on, Memory Eternal!Read more
