Lily kept in touch with many of her Hawaii relatives, but I have yet to see or hear Ling-Ai/Gladys' name mentioned, so I have no reason to believe that Lily had any special affinity for this cousin. In fact, I think Lily would have looked askance at her unconventional ways. But perhaps she at least appreciated that her cousin helped bring the Sino-Japanese war to the attention of the American public.
Robin and I struck up a cyber-acquaintance because of this website, and I hope before too long to meet Robin in person and see her film.
Catch this film wherever you can!
