In Memorium - Lonnalee Virgo


One of our regular painters, Lonnalee Virgo is missed very much by many of us.  She loved painting, she loved the outdoors, always had a smile on her face, and her paintings got better and better.

I know if she could speak to us, she would probably say:  "Keep on painting!"

Miss you.....
