I am greatly shocked to learn about the passing away of Lon. We knew each other for more than last two decades and had been exchanging letters before the advent of e-mail. I have his letters and also a photograph of him alongwith his wife and two sons which he had sent me 20 years ago. Though we had not net, but I had developed a brotherly relationship with him. It was he who had introduced me to NAFEX list.

He had sent me a copy of his first book.

I am even more sorry to learn that he was only 62 which is no age to die in these times.

It is very shocking. I feel as if I have lost a very close relative. It is morning here and I am feeling very sad.

Lon was a great horticulturalist, writer & NAFEX member. He was consistently helpful, insightful and fair. He will be sorely missed.

Best wishes to his family.
