The three of us, Vivian, Enid and I went to several Southern Graphics council Conferences ... in Texas and Arizona. We had a ball going to lectures, out to dinner and just learning new techiques in printmaking and laughing all the time. We made a special side trip to Lubbock, Texas, birthplace of Lyndon Johnson, stopped along the way at antique shops, lunch etc.
When Enid started her bookmaking as a career, I introduced her to Tim Shessley, a master lithographer, and that was something I hold special in my heart because I feel I was a small part of the masterpieces that they produced.
BUT most important of all was how Enid helped me through my breast cancer ordeal. She was there for me in every way. She was exactly what I needed to get me through with her cheerleading, words of wisdom and being a role model. She told me over and over how she jogged during her treatment and that I would be a survivor too. I will never get over what she did for me and as a result my breast cancer was no big deal.
Enid Mark was not only a great artist but a great friend and I miss her terribly. It was a blessing to have her as a part of my life.
