We have many memories with Aunt Case, many holidays and celebrations as a family, Aunt Case was always smiling and helpful, always positive and loving, she will be missed by many family members and friends. She made a tremendous, positive, impact on my life that I will never forget.
My love to all of you, Bonnie Mawby
I met Casey when I was an intern working with her many years ago. She always supported me and I have modeled my technique/practice after her. She definitely left a legacy and touched so many lives. Sending prayers to her family and close network as she will be truly missed.

A note to Casey’s family. I was fortunate to have known Casey since our days at St John’s School of Nursing to our current monthly ‘Out to Lunch Bunch’, (a group of six or seven of us St John’s gals) when we could make it. Those lunches provided us with time to catch up with one another’s ups and downs. We always had something to say and perhaps even complain about. The thing about Case was no matter how she was feeling, her attitude and sweet smile never gave away how she was really feeling. She had our respect, admiration, & love.
Casey Bright Toohig, you will be greatly missed. Knowing you made us better friends; Your soul will be a shining light streaming down from the heavens.
I was blessed to know Casey for 9 yrs, first through her professional capacity as a grief counselor and also as a friend. She was a mentor and a life coach. Her compassion, guidance and healing light will be missed by all who knew her. My heartfelt condolences to her family, co-workers and friends. Rest in peace my amazing friend Casey.
