“We heard the sad news this morning, that Toko Shinoda has passed away. Much has been written about her, and at this moment, the only words that I can find are of deep gratitude, to her. For the gift she shared and the legacy she has left. Many lives, and mine included, have been greatly enhanced by the knowledge of her art.⁠

She will be greatly missed.⁠”
