Deepest Sympathy on your loss. And our loss. Dinamarca was a great friend to me as were your grandparents. I visited the shop and pottery in Lantz often.She was such a Talent in painting and sculpture. I loved visiting there and sending Dinamarca little jokes by e-mail. I hope she enjoyed them. I was so saddened to hear that she was ill, but it explains her silence over the past year.
Sincerely,

Sanchez, Torben and family,
As I think of you today I have fond and lasting memories of your mom,
especially those of my visits to your Grand Lake home. While people swam or
drifted by on tubes and rafts - almost unnoticed by us- she and I drifted seamlessly from topic to topic as our long conversations shortened the longest
summer days.
Sincere condolences ,

My sincerest condolences on the passing of your mother. Truly, both your family and the art world has had a tremendous loss. It has been an honor to have served your mother over the past number of years.

I just finished looking at the pictures of your mom, always a beautiful woman with a beautiful smile. As a child growing up I thought that she was the most interesting woman. She was cool before we even knew what the word meant...she let you have parties.

May this day be filled with the sharing of the wonderful memories that you, family and friends have of your mom.

My mom wants to send her condolences and we both will be thinking of you today and remembering your mom :)

Marca has and will remain an inspiration to all who had the honour of knowing her. Although we had never met in person, she became a special cyberfriend whose courage and dignity through adversity and her caring for others will stay in my heart forever. Rest in peace, beautiful lady.

She honoured me by accepting me as her friend - such a beautiful soul - a heart of gold stopped beating, and a beautiful (in every sense of the word) person is at rest. You enriched my life so much Marca - thank you {{{hug}}} RIP. Condolences to the family (thank you for sharing her with us) and her multitude of friends.

I am sure that many voices are joined with mine, in wishing you well on this new journey in life. Your mom was an inspiration, a pillar, and an impish soul. Always ready to help, listen, or just nod. Marca was so many things to so many of us, in this online world. We will miss her greatly. We will think of her often, and we will smile because we knew her. Thank you for sharing your mom with us, she was wonderful. But never more wonderful as when she was telling us of her family and their accomplishments..

Our lovable Marca is in her glory painting with the Master. She is painting our rainbows, our storm, and our sunrises.

LOVE to you all.........

She was a wonderful lady. I still have my chickadee she made me when I met her on my vacation to Nova Scotia. She was always Marca to me and a friend to all.

My condolences on the loss of your mother, quintessential artist and kind soul.

Dear Sanchez and Barb and girls,
So sorry to hear of Dinemarca's death. She was an amazingly talented person. She once told me that she couldn't stand the feel of wet clay, but she managed to overcome that nobly, and carried on her parents' tradition with skill and grace.
You'll miss her, but the good memories will be there for you.

Sanchez and Torben, Funny but I haven't seen the two of you in more years then I care to admit however, I would run into your Mom from time to time. She always had time for a chat and would give me little tidbits on how you all were doing. She was such a vibrant lady and so proud of you both. Take Good Care.
