My Journal, Friday, August 6, 2010

Thursday, at 5:15 p.m., my friend, Tony Trinchini died. His wife, Debbie, told me he had a tear in his eye, and he smiled as he took his last breath. He must have seen you, Jesus. 

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to know Tony. Thank you for his smile, for his stories, for his strength and endurance. Thank you for his hope. Thank you for the things you taught me through Tony - how to live, and how to fight this disease with courage and grace. Thank you for letting me get home to see him one more time, to be able to tell him good-bye. Thank you that he was surrounded by so many friends and family members who loved him. He always loved a good audience! Thank you that he didn't suffer long...

Please bless Debbie, their kids, and their family today. Give them the strength they need to make it through these days. Please hold them tightly in your hands and heal their broken hearts. 

Anthony Trinchini
October 14, 1956 - August 5, 2010

"He will wipe every tear from their eyes, 
and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. 
All these things are gone forever.”
Revelation 21:4


  1. The Lord is so faithful, especially on our darkest of days! So glad you were able to see him one last time here on this earth.

  2. Didn't know Tony but after reading your comments about him, I feel like I do! Our prayers are with his family and his friends. How blessed are they that he was in their lives. As for you, Laura, God has healed you for He has great plans for you! It's going to be great when we all get to spend eternity together with God!
