Tonya was the BOMB, we all loved her great sense of style, humor, and moxie. She certainly set the pace and she was waaaayyyyy beyond many of us. I don't think anyone who knew Tonya ever would have thought she would come to such a sorrowful end. She was like a bright shooting star, just crashed and burned way too quickly. Rest In Peace girlfriend!!!

Yes, I was shocked to hear of her passing, she was so full of life and hope and talent, and yes, she was wayy beyond us kids in school. I remember her singing "I feel Pretty" in the school play and thinking she was so beautiful!
Another memory I have of her is double dating with Robert Abbott and she was yelling "I need my Aydes!!" and I thought she was saying "Eggs" and we all cracked up . She was using those chocolate diet candies to curb her appetite as she had lost a lot of weight and always was worried about gaining it back. She was someone very special and deserved a long wonderous life!
I miss you Tonya!
