Sad news about Samantha (Sam) price

Hi, everyone

I learned the sad news that Samantha (Sam) Price passed away last month.

She had been suffering from severe myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome.

Her obituary is here

You can also leave comments for her family here:

Sam was confined to her bed for the last 3 years of her life, and mail art was her connection to the outside world. She lived with her father, who I am sure was familiar with her passion for mail art. I was amazed at what she created given the very small space she was able to work in. Sam sent out over 200 envelopes and mail art pieces in 2019, and she was so happy to have this as her creative outlet.

Rest in peace, Sam.

This is incredibly sad to hear.....  here is the last piece she sent me.... my response to her was it was that I thought it was stunning and that it had inspired me to create some new work because of it. I was excited for her to see what she inspired.....

Rest in peace.
