Although I never had the Honor to know Officer Toney unfortunately I had personally come to know all too many stories like his. There is a Bond among Police Officers no matter where you work that can be felt especially when tragedy strikes.
Remember that he will never be forgotten for his ultimate sacrifice.
R.I.P. Brother you deserve it.

I grew up in beech grove and I will be the 1st to admit I was trouble. Me and my friends was always into something we shouldn't of been. There is a few times that officer tony stopped me just to talk to me and give me advice. Your truly missed officer tony. I remember that night and hearing about it a few hrs later. All I could thank about was mrs tony who was my elementary teacher and his kids. You was a great man and God needs good people so he decided it was your time. I've told my kids about you, about all the good u done and that not all cops are bad. RWL Officer Tony

Calling you Hero, falls short
Our gratitude just isn’t enough
Our loss never fades.
Remembering you... always

It’s rare, but every once in a while a special person will grace our lives...
right now, (dear reader) you can probably think of one..maybe two. Bill is one of them.

Keeping your memory alive.

Thinking of you today Officer Toney. I live in Northern Indiana now, but I keep your memory with me. I will never forget you---or that awful night. I hope your loved ones are doing well.

I watched the death row story and wanted to see who this officer was that , the killer said he was young and fast, he caught up with me.
When I saw his picture I cried a bit cause he, was, so handsome, so full of life. He surely had a beautiful young wife, who looked forward living life with him. I am also a Christian and as happy his, wife is too. Fyi....
I gain great comfort in watching videos about near death experiences, where people die, visit heaven , speak with Christ and come back to tell about it. There's one with a police officers testimony as well. I hope the wife's joy can be full, knowing she will see Jesus and her husband. Mashing that feel real is a challenge im sure. God bless all who miss him.

Just asked a friend of mine the other day.."Would you go back to a certain age and start things over again, if you could?" Of course a question that may have crossed everyone's mind at some point or another. My answer to that is, absolutely yes. I don't have an exact explanation for my answer, nor the exact day or time. I just know that I would. Would be a time where we all were together. I realize perhaps more than others, that things do indeed happen for reasons. However, it still doesn't erase the suckiness of how it effects me some days. This time of year may not help either. But that's just it...doesn't matter time of year, day of month, or the time on my watch says right now. It all with you guys feels like it was YESTERDAY. Not 22, 16, or 14 years ago. Like I always say, life is good. It really is. And 99% of the time, I'm the happiest person around. I miss you guys. Not to state the obvious here, I always will. Love you guys... I'll be seeing you guys one day... Peace!!

P.S. Let me know.... ;-)
