I loved Toby as one loves dear members of their family. When people would ask I would always include my husband’s nephew’s wife’s mother in all of our holiday family gatherings the answer was simple. I invited family and Toby was my family. Toby was kind and graceful and caring of others to the very end. When I last visited her, I asked Luz, her caretaker, to please take good care of Toby and she told me that for the most part Toby took care of her. I will miss Toby at every single family gathering – my family will not be complete without her. Bob and I extend our condolences to Jane and Steve and all of Toby's family and all of those who loved her.

Dear Toby,

Thank you for the love you shared with your family and friends for so many years; you never failed to make each person in your life the most important when you were with them. Larry, Jennifer, Adam and I have been fortunate to have you in our family and at several family events and you always made everyone feel special. I hope that we all can follow your example and try to make the world a better place because you were in it. We send much love now and always.

Marge and Larry

Your mom brightened the room and warmed all those around her with her sweet smile and thoughtful nature. As I know you know, you were so very lucky to have her for a mother. I enjoyed visiting with her until her last days and I will also miss her. I rarely buy or receive flowers without thinking of her. Let's think of good deeds we can do in her memory. May you and your family be comforted among the mourners of Zion.
