I just received some very sad news. One of my dear friends, Anita, just passed away. I loved her very much and I will miss her. Anita and I became friends during the time when I had done an art contest on twitter, and she had tracked down the winners and gotten all of the addresses together so I could send out the awards, as she could see I got overwhelmed. But it was not long after that we met in person, at my solo show in San Fransisco, and we became friends, and grew close over the years. She was an amazing person, and we shared a love of Magic The Gathering and Star Wars. She had such a warmth and a light, and her job was helping veterans, helping people. We stayed in touch and talked about which new star wars toy we were tracking down, magic cards, life. She always sent me love on the holidays, and I sent it back. She would make me special magic decks, and we always promised each other we would finally sit down together and have a proper game of magic, a real wizards duel. We never got to do that, and it makes me very sad, because it would have been wonderful to just be in her presence for even a moment more. Godspeed Anita, and Rest In Peace.
