Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures ~ Henry Ward Beecher
There are no words or actions that I can offer to ease the suffering of those of you who knew and loved the person behind Ginny Talamasca's avatar. Having suffered the great and tragic loss of a life taken too soon, I know all too well the questions that will remain unanswered and the pain that will seem endless. Time will ease this (you don't believe this now and you shouldn't, but I know first hand that it will), though you will love and miss him forever. I only wish there were something I could offer you to lessen the hurt.
The world has one less artist today and he will be missed by many. I hope, with all that is in me, that, if nothing else you can take solace in the pieces of his soul he left behind in his artwork and in his impact upon your lives.
There's a girl in Michigan who prays for you all tonight.
Much love, Jennifer (janie)
