Lydia and I think of John and Sandy and Chase and Katie especially at this time of the year. Sadness of course, but always followed by a smile of remembrance of wonderful times over so many years. Bill Pace

Not a day goes by that I do not think of John, Sandy and Chase and what a tragedy it is they are not in the world creating the change they were known to create in such a big powerful way. Yesterday, an email appeared in my mail box from "John Parr"...my heart literally jumped in my chest - there is a John Parr in Berkeley that responded to an email of mine requesting information on a conference venue. Because it was in my email box yesterday - it as almost like a "hey...I'm still in the game"...I just know those three precious people are still working - on a higher level - but still working to create change.

Yesterday, as I watched Mayor Michael Hancock take the oath of office and announce the appointment of Derek Okubo, I thought with love and respect of the legacy of John and Sandy. Their ideas, their language, their nurturing of the next generation of civic leadership still guides us. They would have been so proud.
