Miss Toni will be missed so much by so many. She had such a sweet spirit and kind word for everyone. She endured much, but had a love for the Lord and for people. She was good to everyone. I enjoyed working with her in Celebrate Recovery and I enjoyed her cooking. I know she is now at peace with Our Father, but we sure will miss her down here. I will pray for God's comfort for all of you. Love,Karen
