Bear Hugs and a Fluffy Mustache…

is how I will remember the man I always considered my godfather  who would take care of me if anything would happen to my parents.  Guy Anthony Adams II (aka Tony/Big T) and my dad met at an accounting school in the early 70’s when I was just a baby, they became good friends and stayed friends for over 40 years.  Tony was diagnosed with Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS), the same condition that Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts had and beat.   He underwent a Bone Marrow Transplant earlier this year, after undergoing chemotherapy treatments, and blood transfusions,  fought a brave battle before passing away last week at the age of 67, surrounded with family and friends.  He leaves behind 3 children, 4 grandchildren, a former wife, a loved girlfriend, countless friends and family members.
