    To the Panozzo Family,   I am truly saddened by Tony's passing.  A true friend; a leader among labor leaders; and, respected by ALL.  He will be missed by his Family. friends, and constituents.  I'll remember our 40 years of friendship and the many "patient" golf outings and dinners with friends.  You are now united with your beautiful wife Irene in Heaven.  R I P my friend!  Victor Maggio
