My sincerest condolences to the Toney family. I had the opportunity to meet Mr Toney only once, but it was a pleasure. The impression both Toney parents made on me was that they were beautiful people. This should have been of no surprise as their beauty is reflected in both the children and grandchildren that I have come to know and are really like family to me. Much love to you all and may you have comfort in the ressurection hope and the power you receive from God's word to help you to endure.

Praying for the entire Toney family. I'm so saddened to hear of Mr. Toney's passing. As a High School friend of Audrey's I spent a lot of time at the Toney residence. Mr. & Mrs. Toney were always genuinely kind and welcoming to me....Like a home away from home. I am truly saddened by her passing and now his. May good memories of your parents comfort and keep you all.

God Bless

Sincere Cindolences

I would like to offer my sincere condolences to Nathaniel's family, sorry for your loss. Jeremiah 29:11 assures us that God is thinking thoughts of peace towards us, to give us a future and a hope, may that bring you comfort in this time of sorrow.
