    Toby, you will always be the once in a lifetime friend, as is Marilyn, that changed my life many times over. You were my husbands’ best friend & I know you are together again, now. Sharing your unconditional love over the years was the greatest gift a friend could give. Although we lost touch when you got sick, I will never forget you & the things you did for & with us. Please know that I will do whatever I can to help Marilyn. Family & friends will know who wrote this, because I’ve signed it with the nickname Toby gave me.

    I remember coming over to visit with my Dad when we lived down the road from you all. I always loved your fathers work and was amazed at all the things he created. I have a lot of memories of us kids playing at each others houses too. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
