In Memory of Thomas Kinkade

Thomas Kinkade died suddenly late Friday night at his home in California at age 54. Family spokesman David Satterfield said the death was unexpected, but appeared to be of natural causes.

The Painter of Light was a devout Christian and wanted to make people happy with his work. His paintings of churches, lighthouses, cottages, and gardens can be found in an estimated 1 of every 20 homes in America.

Kinkade’s paintings have been reproduced on everything from posters, cards, and calendars to plates and carousels. He truly brought light to others with his works and will be missed.

    Thomas KinKade’s paintings were beautiful works of art. There was love in all of them. I have a calendar to appreciate even more and many of his picture puzzles as well. I enjoyed putting them together. This world will be a little more empty without him in it. His beautiful works of art will forever remain apart of my home. He will be sadly missed. My prayers are with his family.
