I am so sad to hear this. Toley has been a long time friend to my family, the Love family. He was always at my grandmothers house and helping out. I have known Toley since I was a baby. He was like a Uncle to me. He always made me laugh and would bring me brownies from the corner store. My prayers are with the family.
