I’m very saddened to learn of Tonya’s passing. I have very fond memories of her as we spent lots of time together in our young teenage years. My heart goes out to all her family. May God wrap his arms around all her family and friends whose hearts are broken.

To Glen, and Jean we are so, so sorry for your loss. Our love, and prayers are with all of you in your time of sorrow. May the LORD keep his loving arms around the whole family for now, and the days to come!!! GOD be with all of you, and again we are so, so sorry for your loss!!! We had known Tonya for many, many years, and if not for her our Mom would have died a lot sooner than she did. Tonya found her problem, and told the Dr. . He let her do what she needed to save our mom's life. She was an exceptional nurse, and woman!!!!
