Such a sweet and lovely lady!
There was never a time that I saw Miss Toni that she didn't have a little conversation with me. She was always pleasant and sincere.

May OUR LORD grant you comfort and peace.
Losing a loved one is hard.
Losing a loved one during the holidays is very difficult.

Please accept my sincere condolences.

Love you ALL very much....

There is not enough space here for me to tell you all about "Nana"...she was special to so many people. Nana always loved me like one of her own. I have fond memories of being at Nana's house many times. She was always a jokester! I loved sitting at the Pomaria ballfield and talking with Nana as she watched all of "her girls' play softball. They don't make em like Nana anymore. To the family, I am so very sorry for your loss but I know without a doubt that your loss IS Heaven's gain! I will be praying for you all and know that I love you! I love you Nana....until I see you again!

This special lady is now a guardian angel to my Son-in-law, Cory, and our Daughter, Andrea. Nana will always be a blessing to me. She was incredibly influential to our daughter's husband and molded him into the man he is now. She welcomed our daughter into her family with open and loving arms. I will cherish the time I spent with her and remember her quick wit and infectious smile. Thank you, Nana, for loving our daughter as your own. I promise to love your grandson as our own as well. You will be forever loved and missed.
