Gwen was my partner during my stay in Stanford. We had such wonderful talks that, after a time, I felt her as a special friend I had in Palo Alto,so distant from my country, Brazil. We kept writing to each other for the last ten years and I got from her wonderful pieces of literature and many delicate words about life, about trees,about joy. Gwen is a writer and I would like to suggest her writings to be published.
I'll miss her because she was part of my story, of my life, of my feelings. Be well, dear Gwen.

My friendship with Gwen began at the Palo Alto Unified School District in the 1970's when I became employed in the 'bull pen area' of the front office of PAUSD. What special luck for me! My desk was in the front office area near Gwen who was such a help to me!! Her calmness, joyfulness and spirit were just what a Green Horn like me needed!! It was not long before I realized how lucky I was to have her so near by!! That was just the beginning of a friendship that lasted long after the PAUSD days as we shared common needlework projects and interests. I shall not forget your spirit, Gwen! Thank you for being such a considerate friend!
