I am sorry I missed out on knowing your loved one. I did acquire an extraordinary oil painting of hers this past week that was signed on the back. I was trying to find the artist when I found this obituary. Somehow her painting has grabbed hold of my heart and I feel this connection to her. I will treasure it always! So wish I could have known her. I am sorry for your loss, which I am sure is very deep!
