My deepest condolences to the Tobler family. I worked with Linda at Mac-It back in 1986. As a co-worker, she was always so helpful to me. But above all, she was so proud of her family.
My deepest sympathy goes out to the Tobler Family as they go though this transition of life.. I just wanted to say how much Linda will be missed.. I have learned many crafting ideas and life experiences from Linda and have appreciated her kindness and friendship. Those of us who had the honor to share time with Linda knew we were going to have load of fun and laughs. She is now at peace and in good hands, but her spirit will last forever with those of us who got to know her.. The tears start from sadness but some how turn to smiles as I remember my time with Linda (I hear her telling me, hey remember when this happened! turning a negative into a positive like she tended to do!)
I know this is a very tough thing to go through as a Mother/ Husband/ and Son and no words could make this any easier. Please know there are many out there who Loved Linda and she touched us in many ways.
Thank you for sharing Linda with me!
I met George and Linda at Cub Scout Basic Leader Training, June 22, 1988. I will always remember two things: their honest enthusiasm for Scouting, and their quote that "if it’s not for the BOYS, it’s for the BIRDS!".
You go on ahead Linda. We’ll be along shortly.
ASM, Troop 90
