  3. Toni, your Dad was such a sweet man. Even though we only got to hang out with him a few times from the instant we met, Cory and I were astounded by his kindness and humor. I will never forget the day your Mom and Dad blessed us with their couches after we flooded. They were so excited and happy to bless us and we were overwhelmed with the kindness they gave us that day. We took it as a true blessing from the Lord because we were in such a great need. Your Dad and Cory talked about cars and connected through both being mechanics. Also that day, your Mom and Dad couldn’t stop talking about you. Your Dad shared all the ways he was so so proud of you. I heard “Toni Donelle” 100 times, then I knew Toni is a Daddy’s girl too! It was so awesome to listen to him talk about you ♥️ We all laughed so much that day and your Mom showed us so much love too. Your Mom and Dad made a huge impression on us and it wasn’t just about the couches. I remember telling Cory that’s where Toni gets it from, their love of Jesus, kind hearts and love of family. The next time we got to spend a little time was at Austin and Julia’s wedding. I remember standing outside at the venue and seeing them walk up together. It was so awesome to have them be there that day and be apart of Austin and Julia’s special day. My heart goes out to you and your family. I know what it’s like to loose a Daddy. I also know that one sweet day we will all be together again and that y’all have a very special Angel watching over y’all until we all get to Heaven. We continue to keep y’all in our prayers, thoughts and heart. -Carrie Cygan
