The Toney Family sends our condolences. Tita Nina, I will always cherish the memories I had at your home during family gatherings when I was a child. I enjoyed playing your piano for everyone. Rest In Paradise. I hope you, and those we have lost including my Mom, Lolo and Lola, continue to watch over us here on Earth. ♥️
