Her husbands painting looks beautiful from what can be seen of it, buy why didn't the NMexican include any photos of her work? She was obviously very talented.

May God Bless her soul and look after Her as in my opinion, she was One of His Angels. I had the pleasure of getting to meet her, some time ago and was invited to be her and Eliseo's guest in their wonderful home and can still remember their wonderful Santa Fe hospitality, the many stories of their wonderful children of whom they were so proud and of course their wonderful and warm smiles and obvious love for each other. Their love, hospitality, talent and graciousness will live in my heart. as I remember them now and forever. May She Rest in Peace.
