March 13, 2017 spoke to us as the perfect day to post this letter of gratitude from our hearts. 22 years ago today, our lives were blessed with the arrival of our beautiful daughter Reagan Delaney Tokes. She was a true gift and words cannot describe the amount of love and joy she brought to our lives and to the lives of others. There is now a tremendous void that is our present and our future due to her tragic departure from this earthly life. We try to find comfort in our belief that her soul lives on in her rightful home in Heaven and shines down upon us all, lighting and guiding our paths.

The support and generosity that has been gifted to honor her legacy through this fund helps fill some of this void with love, for it is love that overcomes all and unites all. Even though we have experienced the worst, most unimaginable pain and loss, love continues to overshadow the darkness and evil. This love will continue to abound and uplift as the generous donations will bring change to the lives of others, allowing Reagan’s spirit to live on. This change we know fills her heart and ours with joy as it speaks volumes to the kind, caring soul she was and will continue to be through this legacy.

We are so humbled and grateful to all those who have donated and wish to share with you these words that are in a picture frame that hangs in our family home and is surrounded by Reagan’s school pictures throughout the years:

People are sometimes unreasonable and self-centered-love them anyway

If you do good, people may accuse you of selfish motives-do good anyway

If you are successful you may win false friends and true enemies-succeed anyway

The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow-do good anyway

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight-build anyway

People you really want to help may attack you if you help them-help anyway

Give the world the best you have and you may get hurt-give the world your best anyway. The world is full of conflict, choose peace of mind anyway. ~ Anonymous

Thank you all for choosing kindness, compassion, caring, generosity and most importantly love to do something good. This goodness will bring change and grace to the lives of many.

Blessing to you all,

The Tokes Family- Toby, Lisa, Reagan & Makenzie

1 Corinthians 13:13-And now these three remain; faith, hope and love but the greatest of these is love.

Reagan did this and everyone who shared or donated honored her memory. These past two days were some of the hardest in my life. The only thing keeping me strong was the outpouring and support from everyone impacted by the loss of Reagan. Something positive WILL come out of this. The fund will remand open until the family is ready. Please continue to share and I can not thank you enough.

We officially hit our goal of $50,000! However the work is not finished yet, GoFundMe changes a 5% from the total amount we have raised when we withdraw it. Keep sharing and letting other people know still. The more money raised for the scholarship, the more students we will be able to help obtain their dreams of graduating from college. Again thank you so much for your help!

I never had the privledge of knowing Reagan, but she seems like seems like the type of kind, joyous, and loving girl that could become friends with absolutely anyone...I think that's one of the many reasons this story feels so personal: because just scrolling through her pictures, she reminds me so much of the many loved ones in my life. If this story can bring a complete stranger to tears, I can't even imagine how Reagan's family and friends are coping with this. I hope you all find peace and contentment soon, however that may be. This former buckeye is sending their love your way ♥

Reagan babysat for our boys when we lived in Ohio. She was the sweetest, kindest, most caring girl. I am truly heartbroken to know that she was taken from her family and friends in such a horrible, senseless act. I pray that her family can find peace. God bless.

I didn’t have the privilege to know Reagan, but I wish that I would have. It’s beyond incomprehensible why someone so joyous, caring, amusing, convivial, exuberant, and with a future so bright can be taken away so senselessly and selfishly. She is someone’s daughter, sister, friend, and so much more. My heart aches for her and her family. There are no words in any language that can describe how much she’s loved and as there will remain thoughts of her, she will remain ingrained in our hearts. While I’m not donating nowhere near as much money as I wish I could, please accept my donation as financial assistance and for funding the scholarship for honoring Reagan. I wish to keep in touch and donate more as my financial situation changes. Thanks for sharing Reagan Tokes with the world and she’s in heaven now. Christopher Williams OSU student

No words can make the pain go away. There are hearts breaking all over ohio for you. All of you will be in my prayers every day for the rest of my life. This includes family & friends. Everyone will need strength to continue to move forward. If there is nothing else, know that there are people praying for you when you need it the most. Love & hugs to all of you!

Just checking in and I'm grateful to see all the support that everyone has given. I wish that I were at the RIGHT place at the RIGHT time. I wish I were there to help Reagan; I would've took a bullet for her and I'm sure I'm not alone. I will be looking out for a shuttle to Maumee, Ohio for her remembrance, if not, I will drive. I will continue to pray for the family during this difficult time.
