My older brother Christopher Ray Toler. Was born September 2, 1980. He was born in High Point N.C. He went home on June 1st, 2023. He was a great big brother. When we were younger I would sit in his room for hours listening to him play the guitar. He picked one up one day and just took off He taught himself how to play and could he play it. He was also an amazing artist. He would stick for me against guys bigger them me. He had a big heart full of love. He had a great sense of humor He could have me and our younger brother Thomas laughing for hours. He was a man of many talents he would do anything he could for someone if he had the means to. He lived his life his way on his terms it may not have been how people expect someone to live but it was his way. His life was cut way too short I will not grow old with him now but he will forever live in my heart he will always be close to me spending your life with someone like a brother parts of them tends to impart on to you and to your soul. So they leave that with you when they go. I do feel like a big part of me was taken from a chunk of my heart. I loved him with every ounce of my heart. I could not have asked for a better big brother. We had our ups and downs and our falling outs. But in no way did that mean I did not love him just the same. I will miss his jokes and him playing the guitar his laughter his smile I will miss every single thing about him from the good to the flaws. The good things and the flaws make us who we are, so I know I love him so much because I accepted every bit of him. I will miss him every day until my time here is done. Chris, I love you so much big brother you will be missed you are always with me
I look forward to when we will meet again. Love always, Your brother, Mitchell.
To my big brother Chris you are a big spirit full of inspiration. Never showed much fear you carried life on your back and never seem to stumble, I know how strong you were I look past all the negativity now, You were just trying to find where you belonged. You got lost for a while I also know the pain you felt too, I wish we could have done more sooner but I will celebrate your life as mine continues. You are my biggest influence growing up thank you for all the good times in wisdom. I will see you again when I do. I will tell you a lot more stuff things I never got to say. You are and will forever be my big brother you will be missed more than you could ever know. I love you so much Chris until next time goodbye.
Your Baby Brother, Tommy.
My father was one of the biggest role models in my life. Despite some circumstances he found himself in he always managed to be patient and content with the way things were going he had more strength than any man I know. If I'm being fairly honest this is a deep void in the place of the plans. I have with him now that he's gone. I'm going to fill that void with prayer, music, and consolation of My family as he would have wanted as time progresses his memory will not be thrown to the wind scattered about, and forgotten. I will pass his name down to my children as well as theirs. I will share his stories in my songs so that when people listen, they hear the words of wisdom and faith that he shared with me. I miss my father each and every day but I'm thankful for the memories. I have with him I find joy and knowing that he's with Grandma Karen, and the embrace of our heavenly father free from pain and sorrow. I will find Joy in knowing that one day I'll see him again.
I LOVE YOU ALWAYS POPS, DAY AFTER DAY.
-YOUR SON, LOGAN
