 AYER, MA
On the weekend of April 22nd, both Toby and Jennifer passed away within 48 hours of one another. They both had strong faiths in God, were vital members in their communities, and were such kind and gentle parents. They will both be greatly missed by these communities, friends and family. 

They leave behind 6 beautiful children. Please take the time to post a personal note to the family. Any donation would greatly be appreciated in helping offset any funeral costs and the future of their children.

All of the  donations will be provided to Toby's family (children's guardians) and handled by their lawyers, helping these children in any way possible. 

My name is Leslie. I am a childhood friend of Toby's in which we have kept in contact throughout the years. With a fellow classmate of ours, we felt we needed to do something to help Toby, Jennifer, and his children. We will forever miss our dear friend.

Toby's Dad, Bruce Norsworthy, will be withdrawing and handling all funds donated onto the GoFundMe site. This money will go to support the 6 children of Toby and Jennifer Norsworthy.

Thank you everyone for your prayers, sincere words, and generous donations. It has all been truly remarkable and we are all very grateful to each and every single one of you.

Thank you,
Leslie

We want to thank everyone for their selfless generosity, kind words and the amount of donations made by family, friends, and many total strangers. The donations have ranged from $5 to even $1k. We have been completely floored by the selflessness and compassion of everyone and we wish Toby and Jennifer were here to see this support for their family. The children are being watched and cared for by their Grandparents and their Aunt's. Toby and Jennifer's heartbreaking story has gained national and international headlines at this time, which has gained attention to the GoFundMe page and their children.

Thank you to all for your support, love and compassion during this time. It is all so greatly appreciated. *I will try to personally send everyone a 'Thank you' but please understand this may take some time.

As one of the firefighter / EMTs that ran not only one, but both of the calls to each parent only 48 hours apart, I'm very grateful for the support being shown to these children who have lost both of their parents. We did the best we could, but in the end, we were unable to save either parents just 48 hours apart from each other. Thank you for all the support for this family.

Will be making a donation after I make a bank deposit. The article says the donations will go to offset medical costs! No way, these orphans need that money! The hospital can wave those bills in a case like this. May God Bless this family.
