Tissa was my dearest mentor, constant inspiration, and true friend. I am so deeply grateful for her extraordinary generosity of spirit over the years. She was one of the greatest animation artists in the history of the medium, and she was eager to share her gifts with others. Tissa encouraged us to work, indeed to live, from the inside out–from the heart.
We are thankful for your long presence among us, Tissa, and we will miss you terribly. God bless your soul. May you now rest in Peace. -Eugene
