Tonya was the first person to see my daughter, Erin, when she was born other than the delivery room staff. As they were wheeling me out of the delivery room, I looked up and saw Tonya's big smile. A few years later, Tonya was the one who called me to tell me about Debbie Romack's passing. Tonya had a great laugh and a wonderful smile.
Tonya wrote in my year book that "she wanted to marry a boy like me someday".
What a fine compliment from such a fine person that I truly cared about.
She treated everybody the same, as a true friend, and I am sad that she will not
be with us...but her memory lives on which I will celebrate at our 40th HS reunion
