Update on Two Tonys

Two Tonys - A whacker of men and Mafia associate serving multiple life sentences for murders and violent crimes. Left bodies from Tucson to Alaska, but claims all his victims "had it coming." Recently diagnosed with liver cancer, and is in chemotherapy fighting to prolong his life.

I received this yesterday from his daughter:

Two Tonys is doing good, so he says on the phone. My husband was in Tucson last weekend and they had a nice visit. Two Tonys is really skinny, but otherwise seems to be feeling OK. He calls every week and I am going to try to get my oldest son up there for a visit this Saturday. He called today - I wasn't home. That's so weird about your dream because he seems to be doing alright. Please let me know if there is any special message you would like me to tell him.

I received this letter from Jim Hogg, one of Two Tonys’ closest friends in prison:

I just wanted to drop a line and say hi. I’m here with Two Tonys, and taking good care of him. I’m kinda worried about him since I’m getting released soon. I don’t know where I’m going or what I’m going to do, and you know if you don’t have family you have nothing coming from Arizona.

I remember when you moved onto my yard. Two Tonys told me to look out for you and I did! Just waited for someone to fuck with you, and “Big Jim Hogg” would have broke their backs. I was ready and willing to smash anyone who messed with you pal. I also remember all you told me about life and what it has to offer!

Well, it’s my turn to be released, and I feel so lost, and I’ve no where to go. Two Tonys worries about me, and wants the best for me. There’s not a day goes by when I don’t feel the pain I’m going to have when I say goodbye to him. I have a good heart and hope that God puts good people in my life. I’m so nervous on my release after 13 years.

I’m glad to hear you are doing great. You deserve it, Shaun!

Lots of love and respect from me, my friend.

Big Jim Hogg

ps) I still miss going surfing.

Is it just me or does Jim Hogg's letter sound a little... threatening?

"Two Tonys told me to look out for you and I did!", "I was ready and willing to smash anyone who messed with you", "Well, it’s my turn to be released..."

When he says "...I feel so lost, and I’ve no where to go", I hope he doesn't come-a-knockin' for you matey!

Hugs & kisses

Jim made me miss HB - I grew up in Manhattan Beach, moved to Irvine, then lived in HB & Balboa Island... he's right, HB or Newport is the best in OC... (maybe you can forward this message to him???). Wishing he can go back to CA and live, but it's so frickin' expensive. I graduated HS in 1987 so I was around that area same time he was!

Please let Two Tony's daughter know we're thinking about him.
