"To the family and friends of Tim, I truly apologize for the delay in this message, but I have just come across this site. As I have read the many messages posted, it is a great thing to know that the friend that I used to attend high school and NJROTC with has never changed. I have read all of the messages about the glowing smile that Tim always wore as well as his joking nature. I remember when we were in ROTC and the future plans that we had. From the start Tim knew that he wanted to be a Marine and from what I have heard, the Corps was truly blessed by his presence. Even though our career paths were of different services, I proudly call Tim my "Brother In Arms" and truly felt the loss on the day that I heard about his passing.
To his loving family, although these blessings may be coming to you at a great time since his passing, please let it be known that I share in your loss, but rejoice with you to have been blessed by knowing such a great Friend, Marine and above all, a great Person.
May God continue to smile upon you and comfort you.

I thank God that I had the opportunity to say good by to you before you left to assume your duties in Iraq. As I pray daily for the families that have been left behind, I pray God's choice blessings upon your family not only this day, but all the days of their lives."

""To Tim's family"
I had the pleasure of knowing Tim when he was a young Lance Corporal with the 22nd MEU. That was back in 1986-1988 and Tim was an Outstanding Marine. I couldn't do Tim justice with my writing skills, so let me just say this about my good friend! I have met thousands and thousands of Marines during my 10+ years on active duty I have been out of the Marines for over 8 years now. Tonight I'm sitting at my computer and I decide to look up two old friends from the Corps and out of all those people I had met and known from the Marines Tim was one of those people. That is what kind of friend/Marine he was to me. "God Bless You Friend and Your Family!!!!""
Michael Slagle of Ocala, Florida

"MSgt Toney was my first SNCOIC. He molded me into the leader I am today. His constant guidance, mentorship, and dedication to the Marines under his charge was admirable and outstanding. Everyday I would bring him a lemon...he loved to cut and put salt on them. Never a day would pass without MSgt Toney talking about his little ones, "double trouble". He always had a huge smile on his face and I called him Toney the Tiger. Your leadership reigns on in all the Marines you touched. My prayers are with your family and you...although I know you are smiling, dancing, and playing basketball in a happier place."
1stLt Hostrander of Parris Island, SC

I was sadden here in the states when I heard the news that Toney had passed. I remember when we were in Japan and he got the news that the twins were on the way, boy was he excited. So much goodness, and laughter in him, What a Friend, he will surely be missed by me and a lot of other Marines who had the opportunity so serve with him and be his friend and brother. God Bless you and the family."
GySgt Dobine of Parris Island, SC

"To Tim's Family:
I was honored to have served in the Marine Corps with MSGT Toney many years ago. I am more thankful for the opportunity to have reached him again only weeks before his death. Tim, I found you and was able to express my appreciation for our friendship. I didn't know why then, but I know now.
You are a HERO."
Ms. Candy of Georgia, USA

"MSgt Toney was a good friend of mines. We were station together in Okinawa, Japan. He was an "OUTSTANDING" Marine. He was very athletics and love to talk mess when he beat in basketball or any other sport he played. He also was a great team player. Our father has taken him from us but he will always be in my heart and mind. I pray for this family may their lives be touch by the almighty and be giving the strength to carry on. He'll be sorely missed. Very Respectfully, Jay Senior Chief(SW/AW/FMF), USN"

"To Delores, friends and family of Tim.
I had the pleasure of being Tim and Delores'next door neighbor for the past 3 years out here in Okinawa. I am saddened by your loss and also the loss of my friend. I keep looking outside to see when the red car is going to pull up and see a bright faced smile from Tim as I use to see as he came home from work every day. I'm happy that I could help out by forwarding your address to the Marine Mothers and glad to see that they sent cards and such. I have a warm feeling that while Tim enjoyed to smile and laugh that he is now dancing at the throne of the Fathers right hand. He will definately be missed. To delores and the twins "double trouble" as we called them. Please find comfort in the Lord and what He has for you in your lives.
Tim is missed but never forgotten."

"To the family,I had the pleasure of knowing Tim in high school, and my thoughts and prayers are with you. I thought this poem would provide some comfort.
Miss me...but let me go When I come to the end of the road And the sun has set for me, I want no rites in a gloom filled room, Why cry for a soul set free. Miss me a little-But not long, And not with your head bowed low. Remember the love that we once shared, Miss me... But let me go. For this is a journey we all must take, And each must go alone. It's all a part of the Master's plan. A step on the road to home. When you are lonely and sick of heart, Go to the friends we know. And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds, Miss me...But let me go."
Frankye Gibson Myers of Parkland, Florida/ Broward
