I knew Tonya online through the PSP community. We became closer over the summer and I was able to see how much of an amazing person she truly was, her autocorrect blunders gave many a true belly laugh, along with her quick witted responses. She was kind, thoughtful, loving, compassionate, and always there with a helping hand or a positive word. No one loved the colour pink more than her, She is greatly missed and will always be remembered with fondness. Shine bright beautiful lady,(no need to adjust your halo any longer) ...God has gained an angel like no other! Love you x

Friend Aberdeen , New Jersey

When I woke up this morning and came into FB...I thought it would just be another day in FB land...never in a million years did I expect to see my newsfeed filled with posts after posts about Tonya's passing. I couldn't believe it and still can't believe it...I would interact with Tonya from time to time and she was always so nice, respectful, funny, witty, and just downright a genuinely nice human being...she was the type of person that made you want to be a better person...In one of my last interactions with her here in FB she offered to make me a timeline banner...I told her I would take her up on her offer since I don't have time to make my own because I take care of my granddaughter and you all know PSP work takes time and she always did such beautiful work...anyway after that I got so busy I never got to tell her what I wanted my banner to be like and now I wish I would've done it right away so I would have something of hers that she made for me...we always think we have time. I feel so fortunate and honored that I met her even if just a little...she touched many lives including mine...My heart goes to her family and all of you who had the privilege to be close friends with her...If it was a shock to me who only interacted with her from time to time I can only imagine what you are all going through...the PSP community has lost an angel...Tonya I hope you know you were loved by many and touched so many lives....and if there is life after death I know you are flying over pink clouds...fly high.

I'm usually not at a loss for words but I am this evening. I was so shocked when I went online and found out of Tonya's passing. I couldn't believe it. She was a special lady for sure. I knew her through the tagging community for quite a few years. She was witty, funny and very creative on her tagging. Always there to listen to people vent, cry, whatever. Sending my sympathies for the entire family. She has her polished halo (pink) now. RIP Tonya the world is a bit dimmer now.

God has gained an angel. Tonya was a caring, kind, lovable soul. She was always there for me when I needed help. She always treated everyone with respect. I've never been a pink person, but with Tonya's Pink and angel tags, you had to have everyone she made. Now pink is on my list also. She was so talented and everything she made was gorgeous, you just had to have one. I will miss your advice and patience. This is so hard to understand. Keeping your family lifted in prayer, and may you rest in peace. Love you Tonya , I will always keep you in my heart.

Tonya was an amazing lady, who always went above and beyond to help others- She was one of the sweetest ladies and always so kind and respectful to everyone. She could always tell when something was wrong and would go out of her way to listen and try to change your mood and make ya smile and laugh before she went on to do other things. I am still in disbelief that she has passed on but like everyone in the PSP community knows shes polishing her pink halo and smiling down on everyone.

Tonya, dear sweet Tonya. If you could only see what is happening in our community. The way we are all coming together in ways we never dreamed of or even thought of, in honor of you. The stories we are telling each other, the laughs we are sharing, the tears we are shedding. I don't know how you did it, but you touched so many of our lives in so many different and unique ways. Had conversations with a lot of us, almost on a daily basis, and yet somehow you managed to make us all feel like we were the only ones. You have such a sparkling personality, one that embraced everyone, created long lasting friendships, and made us all feel truly special. You were taken far too soon, and know that our world is definitely darker without you here. It is my hope that you're running free, free of any pain that you have felt in those last few hours, looking down on all of us with a smile. YOU did this, YOU brought us all together, just the way you wanted us to be. You are truly one of a kind and I will miss you more than you ever know. To her family, friends, colleagues, I offer my deepest condolences. Tonya, this isn't goodbye, but rather, see you later.

I worked with Tonya in the Bursar’s office at MATC for several years. When you work that closely with someone, you become good friends. Tonya was loved by my family too. She shared several Thanksgiving meals with us bringing her delicious fruit pizza to share in our meal. Tonya had the “drug” drawer in her desk. Had a headache? No problem. She had every headache medication all of us needed. One thing she absolutely hated we’re marshmallow Peeps, and I took advantage of it even after we moved to different offices. Tonya was a great helper with everyone’s work in the office., and she knew it well. She could always be counted on in a pinch.. She laughed often, but we watched out if someone made her angry. She never wore socks and even wore sandals and capris during the winter. That was Tonya. Kind, caring and thoughtful. Full of life! May we always remember our fun times with Tonya. My condolences to her family and other friends.

Tonya was one of the first people I received training from at Madison College when I began working there over ten years ago. Right from the start I was impressed with her knowledge and skill, but also with her openness and welcoming nature. We worked closely together for all these years and talked frequently. We shared cat stories often as we shared a love for our pets. I am genuinely going to miss having her as part of my 'work family'. My deepest condolences to her family and close friends. Considering how deeply I am feeling her loss, I can only imagine how much more it has impacted all of you. My prayers are with you.

My condolences to Tonya's Family, thank you for sharing her with us and to ALL her friends Online, everywhere, I grieve with you all. This is still very surreal. I knew Tonya for several years online. She helped me a lot in the beginning. And was She Talented! I was a bit intimidated at first, but Tonya, being who she was, helped me learn and always told me my designs were "good enough" and for me to be the one to "like what I create". I create with her words in my mind every time I open my PSP, and it will stick with me forever, Her pink, sparkly, everything & always adjusting her halo was something common in our Online World. Tonya created such beauty, and shared with many often. She helped me keep my chin up when my family first found out about my Hubby's cancer, and she always had positivity in her replies to me. I will forever be grateful for her helping me keep it together at that dark time. Tonya, you were taken way too soon my friend, and you touched the PSP World very deeply. We are all tattooed with "Pink Memories", and will always laugh about your "typo silliness". Goodbye hurts, so "Until we meet again one day". Know that many will be heartbroken, but our Family will help each other through the pain. I already miss you and hearing about your very loved kitties. So, Soar High with your Pink Wings, and keep your Sparkly, Pink Halo on straight girlfriend! Oh, and save a little Pink Glitter for us girl, for when we join you in heaven,

I am speechless my heart is broken I was deeply saddened to hear of Tonya's passing.it's hard to process. She was always a supportive person. She deals with my little English and always answered my questions with love and some humor. I enjoyed her post and how she played with words and this "verbal fights" with Sylvie make me laugh a lot. I have her on FB and sometimes asked questions about some font or effect. Always she was an answer to me. I I am in tears! she gave me support when I lose my mother a few months ago. I can;t believe he is gone. Ya debes estar en el cielo haciendo reir a los Angeles con tu sentido del humor y buscando pintura rosa para redecorar. Te amamos te extrañamos.

Condolences to Tonya’s family and friends. I’ve known Tonya for many years from the tagging/scrapping community. I’ve been away for a while this year only to come back and hear of her passing. So sad that I haven’t had any recent chats with her. And I keep thinking about her beloved cats. She was always there to chat with anyone who needed to be heard. She was a great friend and a beautiful soul. Her sparkly pink self will be missed.

My sincere condolences to Tonya's family. I had known Tonya for years within the PSP Community, and we had become good friends. Many hours of chatting online, lots of laughter and fun, and support for one another. Tonya was such a very special person, so very caring and kind, always willing to help, lend and ear and make one smile. Her love for the PSP Community, her kitties and her friends knew no bounds. She will be missed so very much by myself and many others. And she will be remembered always, with love. When I see pink I will always think of Tonya.

There are some people you meet in life that you know are special. Tonya was one of those. She was talented, imaginative, caring, and supportive of all who knew and loved her. Myself included. My sincere condolences to Tonya's family and friends. She will be missed.

Tonya will be missed dearly in our Finance Office. I have only known her for almost 5 years, but we relied on her experience, knowledge and professionalism on a daily basis. You cannot just replace someone who has worked with a student system, with all the modifications, processes and unique nuances for as long as she has, but most of all, you cannot replace Tonya. She was sweet, kind and had a great attitude in an area where there was constant change. She was always there to help. My heart is heavy for the loss of one so young and special. My thoughts and prayers are with her entire family. May each day get a little easier knowing she is watching over you now.

I am still in disbelief in our huge loss of Tonya. I have just read all the wonderful things that so many have shared about her, and am amazed at how many lives she has touched so profoundly. Everything is so very true and all-encompassing on who Tonya was, and her caring, giving, kind and very witty personality, and of course her funny cat stories will be so sadly missed. You could always count on Tonya, in so many ways. Our Heavenly Father has taken you home too soon, Tonya, but one day we shall reunite with you again, and rejoice together in eternity. Until then, shine your Heavenly Angel light upon us all. We love you Tonya!

To Tonya's Family, May you know that I am holding your family in a comforting hug. I worked with Tonya for many years and valued her work ethic, expertise and problem solving skills. I also enjoyed our conversations while traveling to and back to the annual State Called VA meetings. May you find all the messages a comfort in knowing she was valued and loved by so many.

Tonya... she left us way too soon. I knew her from PSP groups and on Facebook. Her talents were natural and I looked up to her for help and advise and she was always there. I learned so much from her. I will miss her so much, not only her guidance, but to not see her talent coming through the group, to not see her challenges for us to do, to imagine her mischievous smiles behind them as she is creating them for us. She was a beautiful, loving and caring person, The PSP community will be so different without her. I want to offer my sincerest condolences to her family. Love and prayers being sent. Fly free dear Tonya. Heaven has gained a beautiful Angel.

I'm incredibly sad and sorry for your tragic loss. A loss we're all feeling because she was so important to so many people. She was a beautiful person, inside and out. Her caring nature and the way she made people feel important, was one of her best qualities. Tonya had a quirky sense of humour also. She'd laugh at some of things I'd chat to her about because I'm from Australia and some of the slang I used she didn't quite get. I remember singing Happy Birthday to her in my Aussie accent, which she loved. We often chatted, not just about making tags and designing but also our love of cats. Tonya touched the lives of so many in our psp community. A friend forever and forever missed my PinkyT x x x

I did not know Tonya well, but all of my interactions with her were usually filled with laughter and kind words, Her talents were unmatched, Tonya saw the world from Pink colored glasses, Her kind words, sense of humor, love of pink, cats and a year without binning and her halo will be missed by so many. I do not think she knew how many people loved her, admired her and lives were brightened because e of her. Prayers to her family.
