Kim Remembers: Meeting Anthony

From Kim, 12/29/2009

Anthony made such an impression on my family. My kids were very small when we spent time with the Vos family but they still remember Anthony & Evan often. Anthony was so patient and kind with my kids. And what a whip-smart sense of humor he had. I feel fortunate to have known this kind, generous and intelligent young man. The world lost a lot when it lost Anthony. 

We miss you, kid.

Laugh Lines

Saturday night at the hotel, I thought it'd be fun to pull my boys and their cousins away from the Nintendo for half an hour to play Spoons (the card game, not the musical utensils).


Lindsi Remembers: Prankster

I remember last year in Mrs. Geerdes' class I sat at a table with Anthony and he showed me all the stories that he had written and we laughed at them. Then later he tried to shine the sunlight in Mrs. Haack's eyes and she started yelling at him. He was such a character.

Miranda Remembers: Sooo Funny!

I've known Anthony for a long time...I think since he moved here...which was in 2nd grade. He was sooo funny..from the time when he got up in front of class and was trying to act out the story Mrs. Golden was reading, to the time where he was trying to push me out of the class in Mr. Brasser's roll-y chair during CIP class. We have had so many memories that I'll never forget!

He was a very good friend and will always be in my heart.

Not-So-Ninja Moves

From Mom, 9/21/2005

I was sitting at the computer one night in my office when Anthony decided to sneak up on me & scare me. The boys loved martial arts movies and ninjas, and they imagined they were pretty good at being stealthy.


Of Tonsils, Uvulas, and Other Things

It began innocently enough. I had been waiting in the school parking lot for the kids to return from their field trip, waiting and doing a slow burn while another parent let his musically-inclined toddler play the car horn for 30 interminable minutes.


Peter Remembers: Good Times

Anthony was a great kid. We had a lot of fun skateboarding, climbing trees, camping, and doing other fun things together. We used to sit in his basement and play video games together. We would sit out in his yard and build little cities in the dirt with our little army men and Hotwheels. We made one so big it took up at least a fourth of his back yard.
