Ro, did you write the beautiful editorial to Gloria in today's Daily Journal? It really is a lovely tribute to her and so true.


Fiona ...

That was a lovely tribute to Gloria in today's Daily Journal. It wasn't my work, however. We have Jon Mays, I believe, to thank for this wonderful piece about Glo.

I hope you and everyone else saw the article in today's San Mateo County Times. .

I believe we can expect even more coverage later this week in both the San Francisco Examiner and the San Francisco Chronicle.

If anything else has run, please let me know as Gloria's family is collecting all these stories and they live out of the area. Thanks.

There are people, like myself, who would like to write a card to her family, but have no contact information. I wonder if there is an address or address of a relative, they'd be willing to give out?


Gloria's son Derek said his father (John Barton) would enjoy hearing from people at the family home at 734 Winchester Drive, Burlingame.

I spoke with Jon Mays today and he is, indeed, the author of the lovely editorial about Gloria in the Daily Journal. He said he thought she was such an exemplary example of community involvement that she deserved special mention.


Jon's editorial was wonderful. Today's Independent had a good article as well. I miss her already; can you imagine what she would have to say about changing the one year rule?!
