My thoughts and prayers are with Tonya's family now, especially Cody and Nate, who she spoke of with so much love. Tonya was my friend though we never met in person. I am one of the many many people who admire and love her spirit of positivity, good humor and caring for others.  If you had a problem she was there to help.
I will miss her, and I know she has already begun watching over her loved ones. Bless you all, may you feel her love surround you and embrace you.

Dear Family,

My heart aches with you all right now. Life's journey has kept us from visiting one another as we would like but, it doesn't keep us from being close in heart and love. Tonya will be missed so very much. Her smile and laugh could make any bad day better. The last time I saw her, we talked and laughed and I had the pleasure of meeting Cody and Nate. I told her that I was going to come to Kentucky to visit. Again, Life's journey didn't allow that.

And as I can't be with you all now, please know you are all in my heart and prayers. I love you.

Rest now sweet Tonya.

Our hearts go out to the family. It is never easy to lose someone you love. Although we didn't know her personally, her son Cody stands as a testament, that she was a loving Mother.  Our prayers are with you all, especially Cody, Tianna & Marian.

In deepest sympathy, Uncle Danny & Aunt Rita
