    To Tony's mother and his FAVORITE niece Misty, my prayers are with you during this difficult time. Yes I am sure that your heart's are broken but remember that you will see your loving son and uncle in Heaven. God only changed Tony's address so hold on to those special times and moments you both shared with him. I will continue to pray for your heavy heart's. Tony was given his wings because God needed another angel to add to his flock and one day you will have that same privilege and Tony will be there to welcome you both with open arms.May God be with you and comfort you both until that awesome day.

    My condolences to his mother and (FAVORITE)niece Misty Ingalls, I am truly sorry for your loss and my prayers are with you. God was ready to give Tonyhis wings and all the things I
    heard about him from his (FAVORITE)niece Misty he earned them. So to his Mother don't think of Tony being gone because he maybe gone from this disrespectful world to a much better place which in order to get there God had to change his address and one day you both will get to see him again. So in the meantime hold on to those very special times and moments God allowed you both to share with Tony. Love you Misty and I am always here for you, your Grandmother and you are in my prayers.

    In support of all the family, loved ones, and friends of Tony Ingalls you will be missed so much. We have known and cared about you for a long time. My fondest memory of you was of you holding your infant son Carson (my grandson) after the loss of your brother with tears in your eyes. You looked at me and said I love this little boy so much and I'm going to be here for him for as long as I live! Well my friend, you have certainly honored that commitment to your son and daughters as well. You lived your life and will be remembered by all who knew you as a good man and a good and responsible father. Judy and I will miss you.

    To all of Tony's family, I am so very sorry for your loss. I met Tony as a neighbor, became his co-worker at Fedex, and quickly regarded him as a very good friend. He was always very kind to my wife and daughter and always quick to ask how they were doing. Tony was a cheerful and caring man, showing genuine effortless concern about the well being of those around him. That never changed, even as he fought his own battle. Because of this, i will always have the upmost respect and admiration for his good heart and strong spirit. He was loved by everyone who knew him at Fedex and will be remembered for the laughs, good times, and good company he shared with us. Personally i will miss the talks with Tony about Tarheel basketball, our families, and the random silly things that him and I would laugh about on end. Im so glad that he met Sherri and it was easy to see the joy that she brought to him. Tony, you will be missed my brother

    I knew Tony when he worked for Pepsi and delivered to our store. We later became facebook friends. He was such a great guy and always had a smile on his face. I am terribly sorry for your loss. Take solace in the fact that this separation is temporary and you will be reunited when the time is right. Bless you all.

    I will miss Tony so much...I enjoyed the last 2 years hanging out with him and my sis, Sherri...He had an awesome way about him and will be missed by many. Tony was taken way too soon but the struggle in his eyes the last few days made me realize he was ready to get his wings. He was a true friend/brother.He would've done anything for his family.You treated Sherri like a queen and so happy they found each other...They were the definition of true love and he knew it from the moment he laid eyes on her.."I need to see her again." He said that to his son in law Zach after Sherri and Tony's first date. Great guy and an inspiration to many.

    Janet, Sherri, and kids, I am so sorry you are going through this painful time right now. But as much as you will all miss him, he is always there with you in your heart. You have all your memories. Something no one can take away from you. Tony was an amazing man. He loved his family. He was a good man. I was married to his brother, Wayne. And he loved his little brother (Tony). Tony will be loved and missed by any and everyone who knew him. Tony had a big heart. I don't know anyone who knew him who didn't like him. He loved to play Basket Ball. He was a good little boy and I will miss him terribly. RIP Tony. I will see you again someday. You give Grandma Florence a big hug for me. And tell Wayne and Cindy, I'm glad they are together again. Thoughts and prayers to the family and Friends of Tony Wayne Ingalls. Bless you, all.
