  1. TEP (Thomas Earl)
    Our son got his first job today (06/12/09) and has completed his first year of college at The Ohio State University. You were suppose to be here to continue to share in his many first that are to come.
    The only peace I can find in this painful time, is that God is a God of Love, AND God makes no mistakes! I will never understand but I do know that I am grateful to have shared the many good and bad days we have shared as we grew together raising our son.
    You are and will continue to be truly missed! I continue to talk to you when I realize I can't call you, but naturally I don't hear your voice. However, the funny thing is, I yet feel your response with any conversation, or situation I bring to you. You, I and we have a wonderful son in which we can be Godly proud!
    Thank you God for the 18+ years you permitted Thomas Earl to be a part of our sons life.

    Rest easy,
    Toya

  6. To Aunt Dollie and the entire Palmer Family, I offer my condolences and prayers in your time of loss. Death is never timely and mostly unexpected, I will be praying that God gives you peace and understanding and most of all strength to endure Tony's passing. I love you all.

    I want to send my deepest love and prayers to the entire Palmer family. Some of my biggest teen memories was with the Palmers. I feel lucky to have known him and his departed brother Ricky. He will be always remembered and truely missed by all. Johnny, Paul, Sherry and Shereka my love is extended to you – the whole Palmer family may you find comfort in the loving memeories that I know he left you with and the strenght that he has given to each one of you. Remember as long as you hold him in your heart he will always be around to lift you when you down and warm you when your cold. He meant it when he promised to always be there – he is right there by your side.

  10. Lisa (Mackey) Fitzgerald :

    I didn't want to believe it was true. It's just such another blow to this wonderful family which my family has known and is intertwined with. It's only been two years since losing Brother Paul who passed right before Mom. Sister Dolly I just can't even express my deepest sympathy to you in the loss of another child. My heart grieves with you and my tears shed for you and your family. I know God doesn't make any mistakes yet it's hard to say goodbye to someone you love so dear. I will continue to lift you, his wife and children up in prayer. Tony Jr. graduated with my son Rob from Westerville South just last year. Rob sends his condolences as well. May God continue to be with you all and know that he never gives us more than we can bear.

  11. I am so sorry for your loss. Your in my prayers. I love you Dollie. And I am here for you.

  12. As much as I would like to say my final good-byes to you Tony, I just can't. Not yet. I just let Rick and Niecy go. I can't believe that you won't be here anymore. It's funny how we know that we were born to die, but still believe that somehow, someway, we will live forever on this earth. I hope that there was enough time for you and the Lord to make peace and for you to be able to go to the place He has prepared for you. I may not come to the funeral because I just can't handle that. No disrespect to any of my family, especially Aunt Dolly Jean. Take care Sherry and may God give you the peace that He promises that passeth all understanding.

  13. Your son Lil Tony :

    DADDY,
    I love you soo much and you already know that you were one of my best friends! I still cant believe you are gone pops. I wish we would of got to play atleast one more game of madden so i could win that 5$ like always, or I wish I would of got to see you atleast one more time and hear your laugh or hear you say you love me or something! But just know I miss you already and until we meet again in heaven ima hold you down!

    I love you man,
    lil tone

    Tone Palmer: I remember a beat boxin'. Joke crackin'. Fight Instigatin'. Free stylin'. Jumper shootin'. Tunk playin'. All around great guy. Tony was one of the funniest people I have ever known. A good friend. A talented athlete. He was a man who was much smarter than he let on. He had the potential to be whatever he wanted.

    There are so many stories we all could tell about growing up with Tony. Tony and Johnny Palmer could make your day one of your best days or one of your worst days but either way it would be a day you would always remember.

    We will all miss you Tone. I'm sorry I didn't have the chance to see you become the grown man, husband, and father that you were. Like the rest of us you became much more than what we remember as teenagers.

    God bless you and your family.

  15. My deepest condolences to the Palmer family, may God be with you.

  16. sorry for your loss

  17. sorry for your lost. Tony was fun to be around funny.

  18. Palmer/Posey Family:

    I have so many fond memories of Tony. He was a huge part of my young years and has always been close to my heart. Please know that I grieve along with you. Continue to stay close to one another, to hold each other up, and to rely on each other for strength during this tragic time. And know that you will always be in my thoughts and prayers.

    Love always,

    Dink

  19. Paulette Palmer-Smith :

    Big Bro, I don't really know what to say right now, except that when we all get to Heaven, what a day of rejoicing that will be. Words will never be able to express every single emotion that I am experiencing at this moment. I could use so many different adjectives in describing you (all good, of course), but not one of them would encompass the total being that you were. I love you today, as I did yesterday, & the day before that, & the day before that, with all of my heart and soul. Rest easy in the Lord, Big Brother, for you have finished the race, & completed your course. Well Done.

    Loving You Always,
    <3 Lette <3

  20. Anthony & Sonja Rhynehardt :

    Sincere condolence to the famly of Tony Palmer. May God be with you during this difficult time.

  21. The news of Tony's death was such a shock. I am so saddened that so many people will be affected by losing you.

You were a great brother in-law and I never left your presence without a smile or a laugh. Surely you are and will always be missed.

  23. I would like to extend my condolences to the Palmer family. Tony and I were close friends growing up. I am deeply saddened that I wasn't able to see him before he passed.

    Tony was a good guy and he touched many people's lives. God Bless his soul. I'm thankful that we all will have an opportunity to see each other again when Jesus Christ returns.

  24. Thomas Earl, as I affectionately called you from time to time: you was not suppose to leave me to raise our son alone. I will miss our many conversations about our son, Tony (Thomas Anthony). We have soooo much history, and I will miss our many philosophical debates we would have. I know I didn't "es;play fair"es; but you will be missed so much!

  25. Tina Johnson-Saunders :

    I would like to offer my heartfelt condolences to the Palmer and Posey family at this time. Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not to your own understanding. Acknowledge Him in all thy ways and He shall direct your path. Proverbs 3:5-6. Praying for you all during this time.
