Thanks for the invitation, Paul. Agnes Gilchrist was also my kindergarten teacher in room 26. Our generation will remember the two kindergarten classrooms with their little play areas in front as the special place with its own bathrooms separate from the big kids. Those two classrooms today are used by severely impaired students bound to wheelchairs. These students cannot be mainstreamed into the general classrooms. The kindergartens now are on the first floor of the classroom building.

One year, I attended the annual Empress Norton party at Cypress Lawn. After Jose Serria completed his program, we all went to Emperor Norton's grave and infront of that grave is the yet unoccupied grave of Jose, the Empress Norton. Another two rows away is the grave of Agnes Gilchrist. I learned that she was born in 1900.
