For Danny and Jack...

It is with a sad heart that I report that Danny Gregory's wife, Patti, passed away on Thursday. Danny started Everyday Matters, a drawing group that has inspired thousands to pick up their pencils and draw, including me and I owe him so much! My heart aches over what he and his son, Jack must be going through now and my eyes have been filled with tears since I heard the news. My heart goes out to both of them and their families. I pray their hearts and soul will find comfort and peace through this very difficult time. Praying for you ...

This is sad news indeed. All of the Gregorys have been extremely inspirational to myself and to so many others. This is a beautiful tribute Joan.

This is the first I've heard of this tragic news. I too feel very sad for Danny and Jack as they must both be heartbroken and in shock. A beautiful tribute, Joan ~

Thanks Krista, Steve, and Serena. I guess we are all reeling with the tragic news. :( We owe a lot to the Gregorys and when they suffer a loss, we suffer one as well ...

I do not know this couple but my heart goes out to anyone who loses their partner. How one copes I have no idea. Your tribute to them is quite,, quite beautiful Joany-Y. So sad this is the reason you have returned to posting on this blog.

Lovely, Joan. I can't imagine how hard this is for Danny and Jack--they're such a beautiful family...

Hi Joan, I didn't know the Gregory's but they are part of the reason I started drawing again, through Everyday Matters. This drawing reminded me of you and I feel very thankful for the support folks have shown me all these years. This drawing epitomized my thankfulness so I thought it would be nice to show it again.

Thanks Sue. Thanks for posting the video on your blog too. I'm sure Danny and Jack feel our support through our shared grief.
