Our deepest condolances from the Laprade Family Theresa and Roland.

There are men in this world with a strength so great it compensates for the failings of those around them. There is regretfully one fewer of these great people among us today.

Lord God I thank you for the blessing to have known Anthony T. Balistreri – to have benefited from his wisdom, and to have learned from his example. For myself, my family, and all those who loved him – I pray we will be graced with the strength to implement in our lives what we have learned by watching Anthony T. Balistreri live his.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
