The Good Gardener Is Headed Home

Our former principal and neighbor lost his fight. He gave it a valiant effort. I wrote about his beautiful yard here. I made a movie slide show of his yard this year and took it to the nursing home so he could see it. I realized that day in early July that he didn't have long. I'm not sure he knew who I was or that those were his beautiful flowers.

He was such a caring, kind, wise man before his deterioration. I have missed him for several years now. I think most of the town has.

And if God was in need of a gardener, He got the right man.

Even if he didn't know who you were, or that those were his flowers, I'm sure your visit and slide show gave him happiness.
