Celebrating the life of Gloria Page.


Yesterday we received word that
Gloria Page 
passed peacefully on Sunday, February 24, 2013.

Gloria became a part of my journey through her book
         "Holy Moly Mackeroly...
                 from 3 Art Stamps to the Smithsonian...
                      reflections on the Business of Art
                                 and the Art of Life.

I was intrigued by the title alone and ordered the book.  It arrived gently wrapped in tissue paper and included this book mark signed by the author. I could not believe an author would take such time to present her book in such an artistic way.

She will be missed not only by her loving family but the many friends she has worldwide.  She fought hard to live strong, she has shared much of that journey on her blog my2nd life journey 

A wonderful Yahoo Art Community sprang up in Oct of 2004 where we shared thoughts about the book and business and worked on art projects together. Many friendships where forged and continue so many years later.  I was privileged to meet Gloria and several of the Holy Moly Mackeroly Art group members at a Retreat in Washington, MO.

At the retreat we exchanged Artist Trading Cards. 
This was her card to all of those who attended that year.



Dear Gloria, I love you too !!  Friend to all!  Until we meet again, darlene
