Toby was a special child, with many special needs, he was one of Gods angels, sent here as a gift from God to all of us. He touched everyone who knew him a special way, we all learned from him and loved him very much. Although he wasnt with us for very long, what he brought to our lives far surpassed what we gave back to him. We thank God everyday for sending Toby to us and letting us have the privilege to know and love him, if only for a short time. Every moment we spent with Toby was just another blessing. He was truly a Special Angel. Well all miss Toby and his bright smile; hell always have a place in our hearts. We will never forget what he brought to each of our lives.
