Pin Master, Owner and Friend Lena was Called Home

We sadly heard today that Pin Master for Austin and San Antonio, Lena Boutelle, passed away earlier this week. She joined us when the Hard Rock Café transferred the database to us and was always willing to help out. Later she became a shareholder and you could always call on her help (and on some positive spirit it that was needed).

While we now know she was fighting cancer over the last year, you would have never known. Besides, maybe when she told me she stopped buying most pins, but still likes to add Panda Bears.
Lena, you will be missed! We will remember you every time we add more Panda Bear pins to hobbyDB and hope that there is an HRC where you are going!


Christian & the rest of the hDB team
