In honor of a beloved sister

The past several weeks have been rough here at the studio, first with the passing of Mort’s mother-in-law, and then last week with the passing of his beloved and only sister Rhoda Gayle. She had the class and presence of a true lady and was so proud of her little brother since childhood. All who knew her will miss her.


  1. So sorry for your loss,Mort. At least she lived a life so full of joy through all of the beautiful art you have produced through the years.

  2. Hi Mort,
    Sorry about the deaths of your mother-in-law and your sister.
    Thanks for all that you do,
    Rick Mullen
