“I’d like to express my gratitude to Toby for her hard work and attention to detail with compiling my memoirs “Reeling and Dealing – Barney Sank casts back.” I enjoyed reflecting on people and events from days long past, and paging through time-faded photographs and documents. Thank you for interviewing my family, friends and past staff members of Market Toyota, updating the family tree and jogging my memory - while keeping to a realistic time frame. You’ve turned my thoughts and memories into a wonderful keepsake.”
