Jackie, my heart sank and shed tears as I read about Toby's passing. He was one of my dearest friends at Anne Arundel Community College. Even though he was in business and I in mathematics for many years I always looked to sit next to him at faculty meetings and loved sharing the latest news with him. My absolute fondest memories are about the times he would invite me to go with him on his last sailing trip of the year down the Chesapeake Bay and spend the night on the Tred Avon off the Choptank river, with the smell of grilled steaks and cigar smoke and the taste of a bit of scotch. The good life. He was a good friend and I have missed him for some time.
Please accept my deepest sympathy as my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family!

Jackie, I was so very sorry to read of Toby's death in yesterday's Sunday Capital newspaper. What an accomplished man he was! And 79 is sounding younger and younger all the time. I hope he didn't suffer, but the fact that the family surrounded him at his passing suggests that he might have - or at least that there was time to gather.

I hope you are coping as well as can be expected; and for whatever comfort and solace there may be in knowing others care, I offer this.

Fondly,
Jean
