    My prayers are with the family & friends. I loved working with Toni at ABCBS. She was one of a kind. I love her and miss her.

    Toni was the most friendly person. I don’t believe she ever met a stranger. She seemed to always have a smile and loved to make others smile along with her. I didn’t work with her directly at ABCBS, but when we would meet in the halls of the company she always spoke and had me laughing by the time we parted to our destinations. Toni will be missed but she will shine up in Heaven.

    My condolences go out to Toni’s family. May Almighty God hold you and give you the strength you need during this time. I will always remember the day Toni came into the office carrying a big, fluffy, stuffed bear and a box filled with kind, encouraging messages to give to a coworker who was going through an illness. Toni was thoughtful and kind and will be missed. My prayers go out to Toni’s family.

  • Brenda Beaudoin Posted December 28, 2016 8:07 PM

    You were so blessed if you knew her.My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Toni made each day at work more pleasant. I love her and miss her.

  • Mary Byers Posted December 28, 2016 8:58 PM

    Tim and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Someone with a personality as big as Toni’s just leaves a vacuum in their wake, and makes their passing seems bigger than anything you’ve ever experienced. Toni was one-of=a-kind. She was hilarious, and kind and generous and thoughtful. She definitely lived life to the fullest. I will miss her greatly. I loved seeing her around the Blue Cross buildings. She always had something funny to say. And what a great smile! I will keep you and your family in my prayers for a long time because Toni would want me to, and it’s the right thing to do for the people she loved.

  • Christy Kinsey Posted December 28, 2016 10:56 PM

    Toni was such a sweet, funny lady. She was always willing to help with whatever she could. And she loved to decorate for the holidays!!! I’ll miss her laugh and her “Hi honey” when we’d meet. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family.

  • Theresa Shiels Posted December 29, 2016 10:59 AM

    I was so sorry to hear of Toni’s passing. She was such a sweet, kind, and funny lady! She will be missed by all who knew and worked with her at Blue Cross. My condolences to the family.

  • Shery A. Mullett Posted December 29, 2016 8:50 PM

    Gone to soon Toni, we will miss your vivid presence in our world. I counted you as a friend and enjoyed my times with you very much. Such a sweet soul no longer bound to this earth. Fly free…
