So many wonderful memories and each one of them comes wrapped up in a smile… Fourth of July parades, rock painting crafts, Lehman-fest in Michigan, the infamous pool, family magic shows, tooth-brush prizes, moo-moo dresses, flowers, dolls, long walks, singing, dancing, story telling and more.

How blessed we are to have been loved by this special lady and how easy it was to love her back. We will miss her dearly. To Uncle Don, Mike, David, Dan and Sara. You have our deepest sympathy and our love, always.

Christine & Joe

Antoinette “Tonie” Lehman we will always adore,
Accessories, bright colors & Tchotchkes (choch-kees) galore;
Forever in our hearts & always on our minds,
The truth is you are truly one of a kind;
Your wisdom, charm, laughter & good cheer,

Your help & solutions boast loudly, clever & clear,
Never slowing down or showing any fear;
Da-donk da-dink when we need to stop, look & think,
No dish washer required–just fill up the sink;

Then recycle the water into the flowers & plants;
You rescued us all–people, dolls, doodads & pets,
When there’s a problem, you refused to waste frets;
You are one of a kind steadfast & true,
You make our world a better place because God gifted us with you!
Our hearts are overwhelmed to not see or hear you every day,
We know that you’re being called to help pave our way;
The heavens above need adornment & direction,
We look forward to joining with you again & sharing all your love, devotion & affections;
LOLs, chinny-chin-chins, enveloped in your laughter & good wishes,
We look forward to feeling all your big warm hugs & kisses;
Until we’re with you again & in your loving arms, it’s all in God’s hands,
Loving Wife, Mother, Bubbie, Sister, Auntie, Niece, Cousin & Great Friend,
Ours is a better universe because of & thanks to Tonie forever. Amen

Dear Uncle Don & family,
Aunt Tonie holds a special place in my heart because she had this special way of making kids feel unique and loved. She’d always notice something we were good at and encouraged us to keep at it. I will miss her laugh and the exciting positive energy she always brought into the room whenever we were together. Looking forward to the day we’ll be together again. Love you forever, Aunt Tonie.
Always, Laura

Condolence from Deborah Roccanova on April 16th, 2012 11:10 pm

Toni was the most loving, caring and hilarious woman I have ever known.
She made me laugh all of the time.
We met Toni when we rented the back of their house while my husband was in dental school. We only got to be around the Lehmans’ from 1973-1976 and we loved every minute of it.
Toni was so wonderful, she loved Don and her children so much. The impression she made on me has lasted all of this time and will go on forever. Our sympathy and condolences to her family. She truly was one of the great influences in my life.

Love and Prayers,
Debi and Dick Roccanova
