And may perpetual light shine upon her.
May the souls of the faithfully departed through the mercy of God rest in peace.
With thanks to Ana Braga-Henebry for letting us know of the passing of writer and artist, Hilda van Stockum, on All Saints Day.
See details here, at Mrs. van Stockum's website.
We have just recently become big van Stockum fans (after reading The Borrowed House and currently, The Winged Watchman) and just a few weeks ago, I visited her website. We were happy to see that she was still alive, and tried to send a note, but all the links at that time were faulty. The most recent update to the site seemed to have been when she was about 93. I had hoped to track down an address for some snail mail.
The links are now working, and both email and snail mail may be sent to her family.
[Updated: Visit the Guest Book on Mrs. Van Stockum's site to leave a message for her family. Also, see this post about Mrs. Van Stockum's book, The Borrowed House, and the beautiful conversation it inspired.]
