  5. What I know of Toni, she has left a legacy of Christ in you. No matter what she has gone thru, she knew God would provide for her family. I cry with and for you today because of the pain you feel but also believe she is in the loving arms of the Saviour, with no pain and no sickness. There will be days that you miss her and cry that she isn’t there, but remember the good times you shared with her, the times you laughed with her or maybe even at her and vice versa, remember the things she taught you that will remain with you throughout your lifetime. She will never be gone from your heart because there will always be a piece of her within you. My prayers are for peace and comfort go up for each one of you.

  6. I would like to send my prayers to the Morris Family as well as The Taylor Family. God has his hand on the controls and you all have a loving angle watching over you. You will remain in my prayers. What i know of my niece is she loved god and she has had some struggles which completely made her faith stronger in christ. she will truly be missed and she will forever be in my heart. Gone to soon but not to be forgotten. MUCH MUCH LOVE.
    Love You Venicia Antionette Taylor (Toni)
