I grew up on 15th Ave (now called Palmer Lane) in Menlo Park as my father, Arthur Taylor, and his sister,Dorothy Taylor Fallon, my aunt,did.For many years;my grandfather would come by Mr. Cobb's place on Sherwood and pick up his children and drive them to school nearby.When I was very young,I lost my father under circumstances somewhat similar to Hershel's. I wish him the best and very much look forward to reading his book.
