From Jimmy:

Tony was a dedicated member of Losel Shedrup Ling for many years. He helped guide the entry of many of us into the rich world of Tibetan Buddhism.

Tony was one of the very best friends that I ever had. He was my companion on many Dharma adventures. He had a profound influence on my own life. I owe a great deal to Tony’s friendship and compassion.

There will be a memorial service for Tony Delgato at LSLK, tentatively scheduled for June 23, 2013.

Tony was a strong supporter of Losel Shedrup Ling. He helped a lot of us enter the stream.
