I’m so saddened by your loss and the pain that is left behind. I know Tonya loved you all so much and always talked about her family. I can’t imagine your pain but I pray daily that you have the strength to endure it and pull strength from God and memories of the good times. May God bless all of you.
Thoughts and prayers for the family.

May God Bless your family with love and strength at all times. They have gained another angel to watch over and guide them.
My Dearest Tonya… I have no idea how to put in words everything I feel and want to say. You have been my friend for over 15 years and you have been by my side and there for me whenever I needed you. We were inseparable for many years… In fact, I think some people thought we had tethers on, that required us to go together any time we left our desks! You were always wonderful to my children, bring your child to work day is something that my kids remember because of YOU, you were the one they spent most of the day with and made them laugh and gave them things to do, and told fibs about what their mom really did at work lol... you may even be the one that started "the fun governor" title!!! You did my girls hair for all the high school dances, you spoiled me on my birthday, you pushed me when I was fearful of failure, you encouraged me when I needed it most, you were always by my side. When you left work years ago, I felt a void with you not being here where I could see you every day. When you told me that you were considering coming back to work, I was so excited. I was so happy that “I” was the interim manager of the position you hired in for, so that I was the one to welcome you back and ease you back into the workforce. Our friendship picked right back up and we began to have that same bond we had years ago. It made my heart happy to see you and be able to talk to you like we did before. I had MY Tonya back! As we walked out the door on Monday night and you flipped around to tell me good night, you looked happy, healthy and beautiful…. You gave me the biggest smile, and I thought I love that girl!!! Tuesday was one of the worst days of my life, this has been a horrible week and the void I felt years ago hit me in the face at 100mph. As I sit and cry while trying to find the right words, I just pray that you have eternal peace my friend. I pray that Grace, Wyatt, Jimmy, Ashley, your Dad & Mom, and ALL of your family and friends find a way to heal. I will miss you EVERY SINGLE DAY of the rest of my life…. I LOVE YOU TONYA MINK…
Tonya was a truly amazing and beautiful person. I consider myself blessed and fortunate to have worked with her the last two years and become friends. Saying prayers for her family, friends and children.
Wishing her family peace and comfort during this difficult time. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
To the family of Tonya. My prayers are with you all. She will FOREVER live on in our hearts and mind. May God give you comfort, strength and peace in the days to come.
Knowing you and having you in my life has been such a blessing. I always admired your strength and selflessness! I don’t think you even realized just how many people’s lives you’ve touched. Your smile and your quick “comebacks”I will truly miss. You weren’t my friend or my BFF you were my sister. I will always love you!
Wishing the family peace, comfort and courage to face the days ahead. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
My deepest symphathy and prayers are with you all.
I can say that I was truly blessed to have met Tonya in 2nd grade after we moved to the area. We continued that friendship until she moved in high school and changed schools. I became pregnant and we lost contact. I was so blessed to have had reconnected with her 4yrs ago and continue that friendship. I will carry you with me till we meet again my beautiful dear friend. I love you so much.
