Tonya you was our first baby in the family and I always loved you. I will hold you within my heart for there is where you should be. I no daddy was so glad to see you as Albert and Thelma. I can't say you to any of my heart with you for you will always hold that very special place. I don't really understand as to why God chose you but He did and we must trust His decision. I promise I will watch after Jean and Glen and Pat and the kids. I no it must have be hard to leave but Tonya it is so very hard to let you go. One day baby we will all be together and I can't wait.

Mike and I will never forget the good times we had with Tonya when she lived in Mullens. We shared many fun times with Tonya and her family. She was patient and caring toward all.

Tonya was such a beautiful, distinguished woman and had a pleasing, fun-loving personality. She was much fun to be around, and we will miss her charm and wit.

Our thoughts are with you during this sad time.

I worked with Tonya in CCU and the Cath Lab for many years. Last year, I had the pleasure of reconnecting with her when her son started bowling. She was a great nurse and one of the sweetest women I’ve known. We will miss her immensely. Our condolences and prayers for comfort for her family. Mitch, your Indy bowling family loves ya buddy.

So sorry to hear of Tonya's passing. I will keep you both in my prayers. I will share the notice with Gene and his family. Wish there was something I could do to comfort you at this time. I know how you are grieving since I lost my wife, Barbara, on March 20, 2018.
