Gus Arriola will live forever in the wonderful gift he left behind. I am grateful that I got a chance to meet him and get to know the gracious, intelligent, gentleman for which he will be remembered. I can imagine him inside the Pearly Gates, enjoying a cup of coffee and making St. Peter laugh.

My sympathies to Mrs. Arriola, who shall forever reign as his great love in the hearts of his fans.

Her thousand friends that came to the funereal they could not be sad at the mention of her name and a direct look in their eyes you see she lived Gourdo....

Mr. Arriola will be missed. I am so grateful for his cartoon strip Gordo. I read it every day for many years and the stories and characters influenced my attitude towards Mexicans by showing we have the same hopes, struggles, friends and families. May God help his family and friends through this time of sorrow.

I enjoyed your Sunday comic strips in the Chronicle while I was growing up in San Francisco. I have two of your books with forewards by Herb Caen and Charles Shultz that I will share with my daughter. Thanks for your wonderful Gordo comic strips that brought joy and laughter to so many people.

I often wondered what became of Gordo and Gus and was sad to read of passing. I grew up in his down the street from him in Carmel and have fond memories of his family. My condolences.

Gordo conjurs up many delightful memories and chuckles over the sweet and very amusing cartoons--Hope that there will be published compilation of these priceless and sweet cartoons!!
