When I was a young reporter just out of San Jose State in 1989 or 90, I went to interview Cecilia and Tony at Stanford for the Palo Alto Weekly. They made such a huge impression on me that I never forgot them, and sent Cecilia a condolence letter when Tony passed away years later. Today a young reporter contacted me to tell me Ceclia had just passed, and did I have a copy of that old story (I don't, unfortunately), but I described meeting the Burciagas and how they made such a huge impression on me that I never, ever forgot them. It's rare that you meet such people.
I guess this is my way of telling you that this woman made fierce impact. And I can't be the only one.
I would be honored to hear of any memorial service information. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or through facebook, or through my website.
Thank you, and my very sincere condolences. Your mother (and father) live on in the memories of thousands.
