Lita was my best friend. She loved art, especially watercolors. She was the most enthusiastic student I had and also one of the few student that thought outside the box. I would show the class how to paint something, in a traditional way, and Lita would start with that and then add her own flourish. I liked that streak of independence!
She was always cheerful and thoughtful of others in the class and would bring cookies in case someone was hungry. I remember how grateful she was when I would bring art books and supplies to class and to her in the hospitals and her home. It was always fun! We talked, we made art, we made messes and then we ate.
Lita was like a gentle breeze, softly caressing your heart with good thoughts and warm feeling of friendship. She welcomed me into her heart, me - a complete stranger, an atheist, and in many ways a non-conformist. Lita taught me the art of living.
