I am so sad to hear about the passing of Ms, Tobie, I loved her so much. She was my auction buddy. If she thought I was sad or down she would encourage me and pick me up with kind words and her beautiful smile. I have warm thoughts and funny memories of her. My heart is sad I will miss her. My thought and Prayers go out to each of you . God Bless . Stacy O''Neal
