    Toni, was bright light, full of energy and life. She was an old friend you could pick right up a conversation with even after being out of touch with her. She will be missed.

    Adonia and I went to school together and also worked together back in Long Island. I moved from L.I to Charlotte NC 15 years ago but we never lost contact. My heart aches and I will miss you Toni. thank you for being such a great person and friend.

    I’m so upset that my friend Toni passed away! She was way too young! She was a good friend in High School! Toni was known for being very close to her family and she took care of her mother that shows how much of a special person she is! We had a lot of special quality times together! Last high school reunion was 10 years ago and we became close again! She was more then just a friend to me she was like a sister, very caring friend! I miss her so much! March 22, 2020 at 10:30 is a mass for her at Saint Boniface Church in Sea Cliff! I have a cross she gave me from Greece and I feel it’s protecting me, this cross is always with me! Toni is now with her parents and I believe she is in a beautiful place in heaven with her parents! I will never forget the good times we had together and I’m still in shock that she is not here! This really goes to show how every day on earth is so special and we have enjoy each day because life is really so short! I think of my friend Toni every day because she was way too young! Toni is with god and her parents in a beautiful place in heaven! Miss you Toni! Love you hugs and kisses your friend, Janine Beno

    I remember her from grade school. She was so kind. Her parents had a restaurant in Long Island. I'm so sorry we lost touch. Most sincere condolences to the family.
