Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

So little time to say hello and much too soon to say goodbye.
Although I never met Larry person to person, we communicated by emails. I got to know him by supplying him with a bunch of green japanese maples to use for his grafting.
Larry was a generous, giving person, always seemingly thinking of others. I'll miss you, friend.
