  1. Dearest Naomi, both you and Bill made such an impact on my life. I came to visit as a Wwoofer in 2001, my first year in Australia, where you welcomed me warmly and wholeheartedly. I spent only a few days with you, but found you so generous and loving. Your attitude towards art was wonderful, and your talent great. I’ll always remember you encouraging me to just draw, not to worry about the result, just to keep practicing in order to improve. I also remember laughing frequently while having meals with you both. Always thought I’d be able to spend more time with you, but it has flown, so I’m very sad to hear you have left. You always greeted me cheerfully when I saw you around town. Thank you for sharing your home with me. Much love, from Blue.

  2. Dear Damon and Ancret, this may be too late for you to receive it but I’ve been thinking of your mum so much lately. Somehow we lost touch.
    I used to take you for walks in Ibiza Damon, you liked to have pretend conversations in the phone booth.
    Ancret, I never met you but I have pictures of both you in my album.
    Your parents were very special to me and I spent days with them in the Ibiza farmhouse.
    I have a lovely painting of vegetables that Naomi painted on a beach-found chair seat and sent to me in Canada as a gift. I treasure it.
    My best wishes to you both and to your loved ones

  3. Dearest Ankret and Damon,
    as you know, I loved both your father and Mother a great deal, they set my vison as valid and both of them are a mark on my soul. The loss of Naomi is equal to the loss that of any loss suffered by anyone. The world has lost a great one. As you are both immortalized in her pictures (as were both my daughters) our connection is still family. I will weep forever more not to have her company once again.
    Love poured from them and is now returned to you as strongly.
    Paul Clempson. APIC
