    I'm deeply saddened to just learning of Li's passing. She was a bright light that shaped who I've become today. The precious memories of her kindness and always pushing me to never give up on my art regardless if it was any good or not.

    My condolences to the family but I'm glad I got to share a few years with her at Sterson.

    So sorry for your loss, hope some of your family is near for you. Jeremy told me today, he works for Stetson and saw her name and the"deceased", I haven't been in touch with anyone in Samsula for a long time. I hope you are well, I am a full time potter now, I sell at the larger festivals and the museum. I wish you well.
