This is absolutely heartbreaking. I will always remember Anthony's smiling face during the summers when the boys played BGRA. Though a couple articles described Anthony as a "21 year old man", he and all these boys will always be considered one of "our kids" in our hearts and in the community. Prayers for the Brust family that they somehow manage to get through this.
