Dear Felipe, Manuela and Carmen,
I met Manola during her show at the McMullen gallery. She brought so much joy and fun to her art classes that it would be very difficult for me to describe the joy in the eyes of those who attended. Her enthusiasm for art and color was infectious and I can only imagine what a beautiful person she was to be there as a wife and mother. She encouraged me to teach and continue with her weekly classes for two weeks, while she was gone for her treatment. I am happy that I could do this for her and I feel deeply honored. On the very last day she brought me flowers to thank me for my efforts. I was so touched.
I was not aware of her passing until now, and I will always remember her smile and loving ways. My thoughts will always be for you.
