Buried Treasure - Chris Moore

birdsnbloomsNovember 3, 2011

Chris Moore, owner of Buried Treasures, passed away April 5, 2011. 41-yrs-old.

Chris was a very decent and caring man.

He loved his succulents, and was proud when complimented..in a good way.

I just heard the news of his passing.

He and I had many conversations over the phone. It was Chris who helped me find a variegated E. Crown of Thorns. I didn't know they existed. He went out of his way to send one to my home.

I feel awful, very depressed.

Anyway, I wanted to inform those who knew Chris or shopped at Buried Treasures. Toni

I'm sorry for your loss and I only wish I could have gotten to know him. He sounds like he was a very nice man that cared about plants and other people!

Sorry to hear you lost a friend. I never ordered anything from them but it is sad that what sounds like a good nursery and a good man has passed.

Thanks. I assumed more people heard of Buried Treasures, but apparently not.
Chris was a good guy.

He was so proud of their new baby. Too sad. Toni

Toni,

Hi Toni,
Thank you for posting about Chris, I had no idea. He was a very kind man and always tried to answer any questions concerning plant care.I was wondering why the site had not been updated the last time I looked. I bought several of his Thai COT and they are growing like weeds.
I to am very sad to hear of his passing.
