You and your Husband touched all of the Grisevich family in so many ways. Dr. Dunn's support of myself, Gregg, and Nancy while we were at Hall and his keeping up with Dianne and John's Conrad activities speak to his character and we will be forever grateful for having him in our lives.

Aloha Gladys,

So sorry to hear about Bob's passing. Prayers to you and the Ohana. We have missed you guys here dearly. We were hoping you would return one day as his condition improved. He will be missed here at the Imperial. Perhaps one day you will make a return visit so we can all reflect on some of our fondest memories of him.

Dear Gladys,

I am forever gratfull to have known Dr. Dunn during my last years at Hall High, class of 1959! He was an incredible inspiration to me always honoring my talents and academic ambitions. Throughout my careers, I have reflected back on his generous guidance and used him as a model for my own professorship. He is remembered deeply in my core as are my memories of you...a loving wife.

I am sorry for your loss and hope the passing days will direct you
to some fulfillment.

Adolescence for the boys in my family was difficult. Dr. Dunn's gift was to be able to guide the talented and motivated and also those, like me, who carried problems. His leadership and mentoring was an example that educators and all in public life today could do well to follow. In gratitude and sorrow,
