Toni was a nurse colleague but even more, a trusted friend of twenty years.
She was a voracious reader; I couldn’t supply her with enough books. She dearly loved her
children and devoted herself to raising her grandson snd granddaughter; the centers of her life. Toni made a mark on our lives. I will miss you Toni.
