Gordon Zola on Daphne Zepos
Cheesemonger first, blogger second, Gordon "Zola" Edgar wrote a tribute to the late Daphne Zepos. In it, he explains how he came to care for her as a friend and why the cheese community was hit particularly hard with this one.
We walked to the Ocean and caught a slow N bus (construction at Duboce and Church!) back home so I could make the memorial to Daphne Zepos at the Cheese School.
Daphne was a big deal in the cheese world. She was diagnosed three months ago with late stage cancer and passed away (at age 52) before many of us in the cheese world realized that things were that serious and that close. My facebook page and many personal conversations revolved around her death for the last week or so. We are a small community and you know it’s a big deal when one of us gets an NY Times Obit.
