  3. Toby, I wondered a lot where you went. Sorry I didn’t get to see you before you left this world. I will always remember the fun we had in high school. I’m sure you are now running with the best of them. God Bless!

  4. Toby, What an inspiration you were. Daily tasks the we take for granted took so much more effort for you. Where most would have given up you just carried on. With so many roadblocks you still always managed to inspire.

    May heaven lift your burdens and reward you with all you deserve.

    Much love and respect

  5. Toby was a good friend to me. He was not the easiest to care for because he was headstrong and stubborn, so am I, but I enjoyed his company when we were together. I could usually sneak a smile out of him somehow even when he wasn’t feeling well I got alot of smiles last month when we went to dinner at Red Lobster. That was his favorite place other than Tortilla Jacks. This news hit me hard as I had just talked to him 2 days prior to this, he said he was doing ok and ready to heal, I told him I was glad all went well and I loved him and we would talk soon. My heart hurts right now and my eyes leak. I know he wouldn’t want me to cry, so I will pull it together soon and enjoy the memories I have.
    I will miss you Toby. Condolences to the rest of the family.

  6. I knew Toby for many years. I always admired him for never letting his disability slow him down or stop him from doing what he wanted. Although he passed too soon, he had a full life. Rest in peace Toby.
