To Mrs. Frances Toldson and Family:
I met DR. Toldson as a student. It was the first 1X per week class I ever had and it was on Wednesday nights for 3 hours AND I was pledging! What I learned helped me with the children I've worked with for the last 36 years. It was in that class that I drew something for a presentation and Dr. Toldson remembered that and had me do some art work for a presentation for his class. Fast forward some 20 years later he asked me to illustrate one of his books-- STOLEN INNOCENSE. That was hard but fun and he gave me leeway to draw the characters the way I wanted. So it is no accident that the doctor in the book resembles him quite a bit.
I will remember him as a man of proud heritage, an intelligent person and a kind heart. Though his voice boomed, I did not hear it raised but I heard his words reason. My dad, who was his coworker at SU, held him in high regard as well.
I pray that you all find comfort in God's promises--that where he is is home where there is no more sickness and we will gather together again and say good bye never again.
God bless you!
