Funeral Expenses and Support

With a heavy heart, we ask for your help.  On 10/18/17, my Uncle Tony 's (Antonio Fermo's) life was tragically taken away from us.  He was murdered in a taxi while vacationing in the Philippines.  As of now, there are no suspects, but we are hopeful that justice will prevail (please see updates- 2 were arrested) As you can imagine, his family is devastated and grieving and the last thing we want them to worry about is finances. My cousin, Edward (Uncle Tony's 2nd son out of 4 sons), travelled to the Philippines the following day to help with arrangements and to seek justice for his father.

Anyone who knew Uncle Tony, knows that he had a huge heart, was always willing to help out where he could and had an amazing sense of family.  Please consider helping his family in their time of need.

You never said I'm leaving,
You never said goodbye.
You were gone before we knew it,
And only God knows why.
A Million times I've needed you,
A Million times I've cried.
If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart I hold a place,
That only you can fill.......
