Not sure what to say?

Miss you Dad…

Thank you for raising me to be strong.

Love, Joetta

My father taught me important lessons that I have needed in this past year losing 2 homes in the Colorado floods not even in a flood zone. He once told me.."Joetta, if I lost everything tomorrow, I would simply start over building it all again". You, father, are sorely missed but I have comfort in knowing, we will see each other again.. Thank you for planting seeds of strength that have prepared me for this sometimes tough
Journey.. .. And Dad, I am rebuilding. thank you.. All...

Joe and Verretta were bright spots in my life growing up. Joe had the rare gift of making everyone he met feel important. Joe and Verretta were the only home teachers whose company my non-member father enjoyed. They embodied the true meaning of service. They are both missed by many.

Dad miss you! I am happy you are with Mom again! I Love You!

My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.

Our prayers go out to the Toland children in the loss of their Father. We are sending prayers your way from Alabama. God Bless, Your friends from Burton Ave. Rev. Roger and Kim Olsen and Shirley Olsen.

We were fortunate to have the Tolands as neighbors for many years and shared lots of enjoyable times in their home. They were always very generous with their time, talents and means. We've missed Verretta and now Joe. We send our loving thoughts to their family. David and Linda Peterson

Joe and Verretta were great people and Joe was a one of a kind man. He was always kind and respectful of others. What a good example he set for all of us. My husband and I were privileged to know them both!

Offering our deepest condolences during this difficult time.
