It is because of Tony's strong zest for life, his loving spirit and the wonderful people of this town that didn't view himself as a disabled child or man in wheelchair, that made his life what it was. As all of you know he loved the people in his life, he loved living. He was always making a deal, selling something. Tony and his beautiful wife (Mylinda Spence) owned a flower shop in Paintsville. They were high school sweethearts. Having three son's, Mylinda was the daughter that I never had.
