Eve Strella, the driving force behing Moments of Truth, Gifts of Love, passed from this life on July 19, 2011. She was a multitalented person, balanced between the creative live of her art and her training as an engineer. She always had a positive, “let’s do it!” attitude, even in the face of disappointment. Resilience defined her, and her smile could light up a room. Even when her cancer spread, instead of giving up, she jumped into creating this book to leave behind a legacy of hope for others. Even though the cancer took her in the end, she accomplished much and was courageous to the end, which came much too soon.
