Tonya L. Gray Cremation and Fees

Donation protected
My Daughter Tonya, was wrong place, wrong time, wrong people, poor choices. What ever we want to choose to call it, was shot to death in her car 2 days after her 19th birthday. This was defiantly not my plan in life for her, and was unprepared, as I chose not to put insurance on my kids. As I called it, a waste of money, when filling out the form at work.
I deeply feel it was not her time, Coupled with no spots available close to my Mom to put her.  I can't ignore the feeling that, She should not be in the ground just yet.  For that reason I am cremating her. And with that too,  a way to keep her close to me.

I request all of you to remember her in her best way, with a big smile acting goofy and her huge heart full of life and love.
I'm sorry to all of you, as that is all you will have....There will not be a stone to visit, or lay flowers.
I am first taking her home to Greenfield, where a very small visitation will happen at Shields-Bishop Funeral Home. But due to where we are at in the world right now, this will be difficult as well with the 10 person rule and 6 feet apart.

And for that I am very sorry as well..... ….she defiantly deserved more. Any money over what is needed will go towards Tonya’s outstanding medical bills. THANK YOU ALL for everything!!!!
