On Monday February 8, 2016, Anthony Travalini left this world. He left behind a devastated family, loved ones and many friends. We are shocked and incredibly saddened that Anthony took his own life. We would like to help raise awareness by sharing our story and raising funds in Anthony's memory to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
In Loving Memory of Anthony Joseph Travalini
August 2, 1983 – February 8, 2016
Fill not your hearts with pain and sorrow, but remember me in every tomorrow. Remember the joy, the laughter, the smiles. I’ve only gone to rest a while. Although my leaving causes pain and grief, my going has eased my heart and given me relief. So dry your eyes and remember me, not as I am but as I used to be. Because, I will remember you all and look on with a smile. Understand in your hearts, I’ve only gone to rest awhile. As long as I have the love of you, I can live my life in the hearts of all of you.
