Thinking of Lisa Quintana

In memory of Lisa Quintana, who loved flowers as much as art

Promise me you'll always remember: you're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.  -- A. A. Milne

Lisa was inspired by this quote during her last battle with cancer.  Today is her funeral and I'm thinking of her, thankful that I had a chance to know her.

I think there are two saying which come to mind and I didn’t know about them until this go-around… One is from A. A. Milne in Winnie the Pooh: “Promise me you’ll always remember: you’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” - See more at: http://www.tamiboehmer.com/2012/01/lisa-quintana-14-years-and-counting/#sthash.VZE63yrX.dpufI think there are two saying which come to mind and I didn’t know about them until this go-around… One is from A.

I knew Lisa only through the power of the internet and I have admired her and her work for many years. So sad to hear she is gone. Wishing a sense of peace for her family.
