In Memory Of........
Carl E. Toy
My post today is in memory of my oldest brother....
March 10, 1951 - July 9, 1999

This is one of my favorite pictures of me and Carl when we were little squirts.
I do miss him dearly...he would have been 61 years young today!
1959 about to go into church

Carl on his tricycle
Carl was a very laid back and kind person....he never met a stranger and he loved life so much.
So many good memories growing up....our baby brother on Carl's shoulders and yes that is me on the ground.
Another one of my favorite pictures....can you see my little cowgirl boots...
Carl retired from the Navy in 1997 then God decided he needed another Angel in heaven in July of 1999.
I miss him dearly....he was always a brother I could count on if I needed anything or just to sit and talk.
Oh how I wish he were here today.....I really need to have a long talk with heart is heavy.
Happy Birthday Big Brother!

Hope you enjoyed my little road down memory lane.
Have a wonderful and productive weekend!

God Bless
Be Safe



  1. What a nice tribute to your brother Linda.

  2. He sounds like he was an awesome brother. What a gift! I'm sorry your heart is heavy. Take comfort in knowing that you'll see him again. And think of all the happy memories of him.
    Have a great rest of the weekend.

  3. A remarkably beautiful tribute to your brother. I enjoyed reading about him, your fond memories and lovely photos. Thank you, Linda.
