Anthony was a young man who was devoted to his craft, dedicated to his goals, and lived his life in a positive and uplifting manner.

His silver lining is focused not only on "paying it forward," but reminds us of the importance of compassion, comfort and positivity when dealing with challenging problems and difficult times.
