Dear Carol and family, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your dear mom. Toni came into my life several years ago at Camp Inn in Florida. She and her best friend, Carol Guggemos, became very dear to me. They were so kind and generous. We had lots of fun going out to lunch and sharing stories. I was so sad when they left Camp Inn and will always remember Toni's sweet smile and great personality. In the last part of her life, it was difficult for her to talk on the phone, which made it hard for us to stay in touch. She DID love you, Carol, and talked about you all the time. Thank you for sharing your mom with me and thank you for your loving care for her these past few years. I thank God for the happy memories of her! With deep sympathy and love, Rise' Singer

Toni was so good to us. In our younger years we couldn't afford a vacation, but thanks to her generosity we were able to enjoy her cottage at Harrison. Carol, you have endured and persevered for many years of caring. You are admired for all you have done.
