Toni and I met on our first day at BT Office Products and became best friends on the spot. Over the years we had good times and bad, laughed hard and talked a lot. We enjoyed trying new restaurants, going to the opera or just having long conversations over the phone. We always had so much fun. Toni could talk for hours and I was always amazed and I admired how easy it was for her to have a conversation with anyone about anything. We shared our lives, loves, happiness and tears. My heart is heavy. I will miss my dear friend. Best Friends Forever, Joyce.

Love, Joyce
