I always described Tosyn as "one of my favourite people on earth", because it was true. I really, truly loved her. She was so full of life and incredible, positive energy… I believe she's resting in a better place, but I'm hurting bad because I wasn't ready to say goodbye. This world needs more people like her. I'm gonna miss her so much. So much… it's hurting me in my soul. I pray for her husband, Sister, family and friends. May God give the kind of strength and comfort only He can provide. May we make the most of every day that we are blessed to experience. That's what she did. Today I'm completely heartbroken because I lost one of my favourite people, but I'm so grateful that I got to know her at all. I will miss her forever. #tosynbucknor
