A photographic tribute to my friend Tigie Lancaster who died last night in her sleep in Marfa, Texas. 
It's true, Marfa will never be the same.

I loved Tigie and knew her for years. She was my riding teacher and she was just a wonderful person.

Her animals are well cared for. I was sad that the Marfa community lost such a light, and I'm pleased to know the story behind that horse photo (the 2 horses), one of my favorites of yours.
