Toby was a wonderful man who will be missed by so many - more than I think any of us even knew at first. He truly teaches me how an honest and honorable person can be such an inspiration not just to his family and those who knew him best, but to hundreds, if not thousands, of people. He will never be truly gone because he lives on in the hearts of so many.
Both Erin and Toby loved the philosophy of Khalil Gibran, and the following quote fits how I feel when I have been crying over the loss of Toby. "When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight."
Toby was a delight to so many, and continues to be a delight through the silly, funny, heartwarming stories we all get together and tell about him. My sadness stems from the fact that he was taken from us far too soon, but I feel confident we will meet again.
