“It’s wonderful that you’ve taken such a tragedy and are trying to create something positive from it. I wasn’t a regular follower of Wink, but I knew of her and always liked her mandala designs.

I can’t imagine what her family and friends are going through, but I hope that the outpouring of genuine feeling and the celebration of Wink on social media will bring them some solace. Through her patterns, Wink’s colorful spirit lives on.”
