Moving Forward

The grief of losing Tony is still very real to me, my family and the Hom's. Real enough that I think of him every day and yet very surreal to know I will never see him again.

I'm saddened by the fact that Tony and I will never sit down at the poker table together or get to go out to lunch at his favorite Chinese restaurant. In my heart however, I know that he is free from the pain and humiliation ALS brought to him as a once strong, independent and active man.

Knowing the trajectory many ALS patients take once they are diagnosed, our plan had always been to make the Hom 100 a yearly event to not only honor Tony but to raise money for everyone who has been afflicted with this cowardly disease.

Now more than ever it makes sense to continue Tony's legacy and honor everything he was as a person, neighbor, father and friend.
