Sorry to see your gone. I enjoyed the visits at the fence. The waves as we passed in the street coming and going through the many days and years. May you rest in peace.

Family and friends, please accept my sincere condolences. I worked bingo with Toni for several years for both the VFW and Military Order of Cooties. She was instrumental in raising funds for the veterans at the VA Hospital in Amarillo. Sure going to miss her.
