Sad News to Report

Brad Deville of Deville Doll Designs specially sculpted and created the babies for Michelle and I. His web address is: Please visit his site and see his wonderful miniature figures as I tell you, with great sorry, Brad passed away. The news is devastating as it reminds us how fragile life is. After overcoming multiple surgeries from an accident and building a new life, he could not overcome a bout with pneumonia. He built his new life on his talents as a sculptor, and quite a fine artist, too! We miss his wit, talent and insight so very, very much. His passing breaks our hearts. He had become a good friend.

I am very sad to hear of Brad's passing. I was an avid collector of his dolls, and I will miss his creativity and craftsmanship. We have lost a very talented artist.
