  1. It is so sad to hear about Toby. His family and God was always his first priority in life. He was the most patriotic man. I was so honored to meet him back in the 90’s and her treated me and my kids just like we were part of his family. He joked that my daughter and Krystal could have been twins by their spunk alone. Thank you Toby for the great memories you left in my heart. I’m sure you will be watching down on your beautiful family. I will be praying for all of your family during this time. We will listen to you again one day up there in the heavens. Love you Toby!
