Card of Thanks

The family of Anthony Worobey wants to thank all family and friends for their support in the loss of our husband, father, and Papa. We appreciate all the cards, calls, prayers, food, flowers, and offers of help. We thank everyone who helped in any way for the lunch after the services. It was comforting to see the support of everyone who attended his services. He truly loved his family and friends in the community. We will cherish all the good memories you have shared with us. We thank the Northern Wayne ambulance, all the doctors who cared for him, Wayne Memorial and Wilson Hospitals and their intensive care units for their care when needed. Tony often said when he graduated high school he wanted to get married and become a dairy farmer. He served two years in the Army. He then accomplished his dream to become a dairy farmer and raise his family on the farm he loved so much in Preston Park.
