I worked with Sherman for the past 5 years or so at Honda and was very saddened to hear of his passing. I know he was excited about his new opportunity at work.
Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him. May Sherman rest in peace.

Dear Toney family,
I have worked with Sherm for several years in the purchasing new model department at Honda. I live in Mechanicsburg too, and we carpooled several times, when I needed a ride or he needed one. He was a good co-worker and a good friend. He will be missed. I am so very sorry for your loss.
Sincerely, Eric Price

And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. My sincere condolences to the Toney family on the loss of your dear loved one. May these words of Revelation 21:4 give you a measure of comfort and strength to endure during this time of grief and deep sorrow.

My sincerest condolences to the entire family. Sherman was was very kind man who took the time to teach me when I worked with him as a contractor in APQ. I still remember him teaching me Autocad during down time at work…and he was so funny to work with. I hope you can carry with you the loss that will be felt without him at work. He was liked by so many.
