Mrs. Bernice Toney was like a Bonus Mom for many of us as children in Marshalltown Terrace. I will never forget her kindness towards me, her megawatt smile & her easygoing way with us as teens. It pains me to not be there with you all during this time of bereavement. My heart is very heavy and my prayers go out to Mr. Nathaniel Toney & the entire Family. Audrey, I am forever grateful that you were so unselfish in sharing your Mom with us. She helped us make some beautiful memories & she will always be close to my heart....
