Rev. Jim has been detailing the progress.

May 15 at 4:31 PM  · Update: the search for a new Wall’s future home continues. People are talking to people. At this stage, it might be unfair to some private establishments to mention them by name before being able to gauge their interest, so being turned down doesn’t reflect on them too negatively. They will have their reasons. But if you’d like to talk to an establishment as a potential home, please email SFBMMemorialWall@gmail.com and we’ll add you to the site-seeking roster.

Danny Boy has some great ideas, including some with multiple Wall versions. We’ll get to that later though.

Edits for existing Wall:

  1. Remove Rivas
  2. Remove all the “d.”‘s?
  3. Jon LN*
  4. Glenn LN* (=Adrian?)
  5. Alex LN*

etc etc’LN’= ‘last name?’. Once I get the name and year on the list correctly, please delete your comment. I’ll reply “got you” to let you know. It’ll be a lot easier to edit this way. Leave any negativity and ego at the door. And if you see a name of power, feel free to make a whole new post elsewhere! It is difficult work navigating through so many extra comments, we don’t always get notified well and don’t want to miss anything.10
