    Dear Toni,
    From down below we are looking up to you now in heaven with your beloved husband, family and friends.
    We will all miss you. All the many lessons you taught us, about being a great hostess, a good person, a loving and caring friend. Christmas and all the traditions you shared so generously like your famous egg nog and mince meat recipes. Christmas Eve will never be the same, our one night to chat about the entire year that had passed. A wonderful grandmother to 3 gorgeous girls and a mother second to none, but my own. All the years we shared together at The Country Store and the Lily Pad, all the great memories there and for the last 31 years. You will be always be in my heart. Lovingly, Paula Meridan

    Jay, Faith, and girls…
    Your mom and grandmother will always be a part of my childhood memories. I will remember your mom and mine “decorating” us up for the holidays by putting little heart stickers and shamrocks on our uniform blouses; I’ll remember her sense of fashion, I’ll remember the recitals and the birthday parties, and her sunbathing out on the driveway with you Faith! She kept an eye on all of us and in more recent years on the doings of the neighborhood and of 50 Emerson. She loved you all fiercely and without judgment. She will be missed. XO, Kathi

    I am heartbroken for my friend, Faith and her daughters. I’ve never known anyone who loved her mother as much as Faith did and I know that love, devotion and companionship was shared equally. What a lovely legacy Toni left behind as she must be proud to have raised such a wonderful daughter. I wish peace and comfort for my friend Faith and her fabulous daughters. I also regret that I couldn’t be there to show my support. I love you! Xo Mrs Cooper
