How sad.

Pat Perry created San Ramon's Poet Laureate position and filled it for the first two terms.

Here's a link to an article Delores Fox Ciardelli wrote in October, 2009 that reprints two of Pat Perry's poems Web Link

As Longtime Resident said above, Pat Perry will be sorely missed!

My heart goes out to Pat's family and friends. She was a mentor and facilitator for so many of us involved with the early years of the City of San Ramon. She could always be counted on to help with an event or project over and above her duties at City Hall. We will miss her.

The Tri-Valley art community has lost both a supporter and an artist. Pat’s love of poetry and her willingness to contribute set the standard for San Ramon’s Poet Laureates that have followed her.

The San Ramon Arts Foundation is especially saddened by the loss, and the Board and members of the Foundation express send their thoughts and prayers to Pat’s family and friends. We will continue to celebrate her life that she expressed so well in her art.

This is yet again a sad commentary about the danger of guns in homes. Yes the gun nuts will be screaming that guns had nothing to do it, that he would have harmed her in other ways, etc. etc. We all know the rhetoric.

BUT I hope that some woman who reads this will understand that the ugly truth about guns, in that if there is one in the house supposedly for "protection" the overwhelming evidence from FBI and DOJ data that she is something like 11x more likely that the gun will be used on her than for those fictional bad people crawling in the windows at night. This is especially true if there is alcohol abuse and/or spousal abuse going on. [removed because it could not be verified]

Dano50, as a friend of Pat's for many years, this is absolutely the wrong venue for your diatribe.
