With all that’s been going on in the past month, I managed to miss this: Artist Ray Ferrer, 35, died May 20 at home in San Diego. I happened just today to think to check his wife Rhian’s feed and saw this:

Ray had a stage 4 glioblastoma, but had managed for quite a while to continue his work. I have a few pieces in my office at work, and they always make me happy.

I believe you can still donate at GoFundMe to help defray the costs incurred during Ray’s battle with cancer.

Please keep Rhian and Ray in your thoughts.

Of course he was a cat lover too. One more reason I liked Ray.  Image from Rhian Ferrer's Twitter.

    • I do too … I’ve had too many friends and family members who’ve battled it.

      I’m just glad that Ray discovered his artistic calling; the prints I have in my office always make me smile.
