A Tribute to Gina Wise

I write this with a heavy heart upon learning of the sudden passing of a dear friend. Gina was a wonderfully gifted and creative artist whom I've had the pleasure of knowing for many years. I never met her in person but that wasn't necessary to know Gina. A smile or a laugh was attached to every email. Each page in a deco was accompanied by some special little personal touch. Every post to a group was positive and joyful. The art she created and shared was wonderfully diverse - beautiful, whimsical, quirky - oh so Gina. She was a lovely and gracious person who will be sorely missed by many.

Joanne, Thank you for the tribute. She would be astounded by the outpouring of love from the number of people who never met her. I had the joy of knowing her for 27 years. She was truly delightful.
