I joined Toni's family 29 years ago. From the first day I met my Sister-in-Law she welcomed me and made me feel a part of the family. Over the years we visited her, Darrell and her family almost every year. We had many wonderful times together, visiting, learning of her family history and especially enjoying her special meals and treats. I will forever remember Toni and will hold a special place in my heart for her. I look forward to seeing her again with all of my family that have already gone to be with our Lord in Heaven. Love Butch
