It would have been nice if she had lived to see the wonderful book coming out about her.
I'd like to think that she may have had a peek at the manuscript before the printing. It's very possible that the author had been in contact with her as part of the research for the book.
How unfortunate. I tried to visit with her last Summer but I was told she was not well.
What a lovely photo. Thank you for posting. Glad to know this artist is appciated so widely. warmest wishesCharles Talbot
