Happy Birthday Anthony

Dear Anthony,

Today is your 53rd birthday. It is your 2nd birthday since you disappeared. We continue to look for you and do all we can to find you or at least gain closure. Everyday is filled with hope, sorrow, frustrations, and faith.

Everyone we talk to liked you so much. They all comment about your ability to do anything you set your mind to. They all talk about what all you had - a great family, several great businesses and lots of land to enjoy your hobbies of fishing, hunting and just being in the outdoors. You have so many wonderful friends, friends that care about you and just like your family, they all hope to get answers.

Soon it will be Christmas. The one thing I always think about when opening presents is you and your pocket knife, the knife you left at home when you disappeared along with everything else. Every time we were all together opening gifts, if tape or a ribbon needed to be cut you jumped up with the pocket knife in hand. All of us will be missing you more than ever this Christmas.

I hope where ever you are you know how much you are missed and loved. I hope you know that we will not quit looking for you. We hope and pray to find you alive and well but if not that we long for closure and justice.
