The Board of Directors, Officers and Honorary Advisor of
The Radiance Technique International Association, Inc.
invite you to join us in Honoring and Celebrating
the life of Barbara Bliss, who made her transition
in the timing of a Full Moon and the 2016 Summer Solstice.

Barbara Bliss studied The First Degree of The Radiance Technique®, Authentic Reiki® with Dr. Barbara Ray in 1981 and became one of the earliest Authorized Instructors. Many people have known Barbara well from TRTIA activities in the past thirty-six years. She welcomed people at conferences and participated enthusiastically in every TRTIA fundraising event. She volunteered tirelessly at every Conference bookstore. In the days before email, Barbara would help with any and every mailing, sealing thousands of envelopes with good humor and great willingness. No matter how great or small the task, Barbara was always there to help!

Barbara was also committed to what was founded in 1986 as The Radiance Foundation, Inc., and is currently The Radiant Peace Foundation International, Inc. She organized many garage sales, local bonanza sales, raffles and walks, raising much-needed funds over many years. She participated frequently in a variety of Radiant Peace® projects and often visited The International Museum of Radiant Peace, rain or shine.

We will always remember Radiant Barbara with great fondness, expressing our heartfelt Gratitude for her dedicated support of TRTIA Forever.

- Dr. Barbara Ray, Honorary Advisor
Shoshana Shay, Honorary Advisor Assistant & Co-Director
Katherine Lenel, Co-Director
Ann Healy, Assistant to the Co-Directors

The Board of Directors, Officers and Honorary Advisor of The Radiance Technique International Association, Inc. invite you
to join us in honoring and celebrating the life of Maralyn Rose, who recently made her transition (August 2015).

Maralyn was a longtime dedicated student and one of the early Authorized Instructors of The Radiance Technique®, Authentic Reiki®. In her thirty-six years of using TRT®, she generously gave of her time and energy to TRTIA in innumerable ways. At various times over the years, Maralyn served as Executive Director, Secretary, Treasurer, and a member of the Board of Directors, and as a steady and tireless helper at TRTIA Conference bookstores. Thanks to her skills, the TRTIA office of the 1980's was run with care and accuracy: there are abundant files with Maralyn's handwriting on them to this day!

Maralyn also had a deep commitment to what was founded in 1986 as The Radiance Foundation, Inc., and is currently The Radiant Peace Foundation International, Inc. She was a co-editor of the early book of children's quotes about Radiant Peace®, Heart to Heart. With a great love of Radiant Peace® projects, Maralyn generously read essays, put together mailings, and took the Foundation through the transition from typewriter to computers and to the decade when TRTIA accepted responsibility for continuing Radiant Peace® projects.

Whatever the circumstance, Maralyn was always quietly present and willing to do what was needed. Many of the books published about The Radiance Technique® were first typed by Maralyn. Even in the recent years of her physical illness, she volunteered for TRTIA by putting older printed texts about Authentic Reiki® into digital format. In Maralyn's own words, "I am honored to volunteer in whatever way I can to assist, and love doing it. It's so uplifting to touch into the energy of the books and the sharings." After she completed putting one book into Word, she wrote, "What a Joy it has been - much Gratitude for the opportunity!"

Our Heart First Love remembering Radiant Maralyn and enormous Gratitude for her support of TRTIA Forever.

The Board of Directors, Officers and Honorary Advisor of The Radiance Technique International Association, Inc. invite you
to join us in honoring and celebrating the life of Gretchen Forrester, who made her transition on December 11, 2010.

For twenty-nine years, Gretchen generously supported The Radiance Technique International Association, Inc.. She served many times as a Board member and officer and helped willingly and tirelessly at TRTIA Conferences and on fundraising tours. In addition to her generous financial donations each and every year, she was always there with a helping hand and a beaming smile.

Gretchen, with her husband, Roger, was also one of the major TRTIA Building Fund donors who made possible owning our International Headquarters in St. Petersburg, Florida. The purchase of the building led to greater expansion in TRTIA's service to the public, and to the establishment of The International Museum of Radiant Peace in that same building, thanks to their ongoing and generous support.

Indeed, Gretchen will be tremendously missed not only by her family but also by many friends and students of TRT® from all over the world, including the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia and Egypt. She gave of herself whole-heartedly and with great Joy and Love. Everyone who met Gretchen loved her, and she was an incredible friend to all.

A Radiant citizen of this planet and the entire Universe, Gretchen left us all a personal message:

"Family and Friends are invited to celebrate the Continuing Journey with spirals of Love, Joy, Light, Laughter and Song. Heart First into always."

Our Heart First Love remembering Radiant Gretchen and enormous Gratitude for her support of TRTIA Forever.

-- Katherine Lenel & Shoshana Shay, Co-Directors & Dr. Barbara Ray, Honorary Advisor
