Milonguera (Debbie Martin) (10/4/1952-11/2/2020)
« on: November 03, 2020, 02:26:20 PM »
Dear friends,

I don't really know which category to post this in. Many of you know Debbie ( @Milonguera on the forum and on Instagram) from the forum, from IAMPETH or from various classes, online and offline. It breaks my heart to say this but I thought you should know that she passed away yesterday. She had been battling cancer for a while and she had made her peace with it.

If you would like to send a condolences card to her husband, please write me an e-mail at hallo@tintenfuchs.net and tell me where you know her from and I will gladly give you the address, since I do not want to post it publicly. I believe her husband will enjoy knowing how loved she was within the calligraphy community as well. She was a beautiful person inside and out and the world will be a darker place without her light.

Wishing you all the best during these crap times,
Natascha

Oh this reads like a sucker punch to the stomach. Debbie was a kind soul with a generous heart.
The world is indeed less bright today. Thank you for being the bearer of this news Natascha.

My words do not speak justice to the lights that burns more brightly for all that she had shared and inspired within us.  Her passing is much lost and her battles and suffering has passed.  Peace upon her.

Oh no! I know Debbie only through FF and IG. She was such a kind-hearted person and always generous with comments.
Thank you, Natascha, for sharing this. Stay well.

Oh, no!!  She was a generous & kind person.  I'm said & the calligraphy family has a hole in it's heart with her passing!  I hope that all of you stay well in the midst of this pandemic!  God bless you!
