I was so, so sad to hear of Toot’s passing. She was a very special, one of a kind lady and I feel so very blessed to have had the chance to know her and call her family. Her sense of humor, quick wit, and live of her family were all infectious and I’ll never forgot those, and so many other, endearing traits. I miss you all and I send you all love and wish you peace and comfort. I hope that the abundance of fond memories that you all have will help to get you through the most difficult of moments in the days and weeks ahead. Thinking of you all. Much Love, Bob

Our sincere condolences & prayers go out to the entire family. Toot was a great lady who was always sitting in front of the house in the summer. When I would pass & yell to her she would always yell back, did you see Eddie lately.! She loved her family. Keep yelling toot!!
Tom & Faye Gerner.
