I am so sorry, Barb and family. When I saw the sun peek out not long ago, I took that to mean Toby had made it. Rest in peace HRH.

Beautiful. I can picture Toby already smiling that smile into your heart, that picture tells so clearly how greatly he loved and was loved.

I am so sorry you had to say good bye,

What a beautiful smiling boy. Just remember the love affair never ever dies... that love goes on forever. He's just behind the thin veil that separates us from forever life. Hugs and warm healing thoughts to you and your family. Godspeed Toby... send your mom some Godwinks!

We were just outside and I marveled at how beautiful the day was. It reminded me of Toby lounging inside under the umbrella.

Then I noticed the moon in the sky in the middle of the day - a beautiful thing quite unexpected, just as your relationship with Toby was and always will be.

Rest in peace, beautiful boy. Run free now and play.

My sincerest condolences, Barb. Toby knew how deeply you loved him, and he will return that love beyond his final breath on earth, into eternity.
Weeping with you and sending you strength in my heart.

Even though we have never met, I understand fully the emotions that you are going through. Toby was a loved boy and is now running free at the bridge, joined by Vivien and Sweeney Todd who are playing with him right now.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.

The sky will be brighter tonight for the addition of Toby's star.

Writing "On Joy and Sorrow," Khalil Gibran tells us:
The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain.
Is not the cup that holds your wine the very cup that was burned in the potter's oven?
And is not the lute that soothes your spirit, the very wood that was hollowed with knives?
When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy.
When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.

Barb, nursing Toby over the last months and now setting him free has hollowed out new places in your heart - a heart that grew bigger to hold your incredible love for him. Someday I hope the new hollows carved by today's sorrow will fill with joy again.

For now, I wish I could hold you in my arms and cry along with you.
