Yes, thank you, Nolan.  I was just about to post the link to the newsletter which includes a number of photos of this remarkable man.   https://mailchi.mp/a12fced5f7ad/oh-my-art-newsletter-4906665?e=112743d420


Thank you for all your kind words. Earle and I had a wonderful life together.  I have a wonderful support system here with friends and neighbors, and my son is only 20 miles away.

Once all the social distancing is over and life gets back to normal, I hope to get back to the PaintBasket Forum that I love.

Sincere aloha,

MaryAnne

Dear MaryAnne,
Please accept my sincere condolences.   Your husband was a wonderful man and I hope that your memory will comfort you during this difficult time.   If we all do it well, social distancing will soon be over.  Wish we can all give you a big hug.
Warmest regards, Annie

MaryAnne, This was truly so touching to read. In fact, it made me cry.  I wish I had known him, I feel I lost out on not knowing such a kind, witty and generous man.  How lucky you were to have had him so long in your life.  How many wonderful memories you have.  You have my deepest sympathy and healing prayers.

Hi MaryAnne,

Wow that wasn’t what I expected to read my first time back on Paintbasket.  :'(   :( Mike and I are so sorry to hear of Earle’s passing. He was such a lovely person. Mike really enjoyed talking to him when we stayed with you both. We were just talking about you both the other day while I was cleaning our ‘Earle special’ bowl. I am glad you have a good support system. Please know I am thinking of you and sending all my love and best wishes to you.

Love Lisa and Mike
Aroha! Lisa :-)
