Story

Iain McNay of Cherry Red Records said of Tony K " One of the things I liked so much about Tony was his enthusiam for life.  Whatever he was involved in he did in a wholehearted way, and he also didn't give up on things easily.  He talked fast, walked fast; and indeed seemed to do everything as quickly as he could.  It was as if he  knew his days on Earth were limited and he had to make the most of every single second.  He also had genuine vision, an increasingly rare commodity in today's world"

Tony was cared for at St James's Institute of Oncology by a wonderful team of nurses, doctors, technicans, domestics, porters etc and I want to give something back to them.  I hope you feel the same way - and will remember Tony with enthusiasm.
