Dear Lila and other family members,
Life is short and it goes by so quickly.
Toby’s life was too short. But God knows when we are ready for a new home in heaven.
My prayers, along with my mother (Gladys Hunley and other family members) are thinking of you and praying that God will supply the grace, the strength, the will to move forward. It will not be easy and we know it. We love you and will be praying for you and all the family. Please call if we can help in any way. Love, the Hunley & Rogers families.
