Your comments about your father are as moving an epitaph as any I have read. They match the spirit of the introduction to GGG. I worked in the first compost I ever prepared yesterday. You can imagine the pleasure. Thank you for your help.

I enjoyed the note about Uncle Sheldon. I think it is really interesting that Aunt Charlotte, my Dad and Uncle Sheldon had similar back yards--rich with trees--some unusal for the area. They were all proud of the things they could grow and a real love for the wonder of it all. I can sure see it in your profession that you also have that gift. I dabble in flowers. I truly do love the peace of my own backyard as well. We are all blessed by our Peirce ancestory!mek


Thank you for your thoughts Randy. I will check out your tribute to your dad.

My condolances on the loss of your father. From the photo he looks to have been a very nice guy. You were lucky and blessed to have a father that took the time to share his love of gardening and plant life with you. I lost my father back in 1981 but he still lives in my heart. I wrote a tribute to him last year on his birthday, if you would like to look at it got to http://andrewsalazardelao.blogspot.com.
