Sadly Derek (from GB) passed away Wednesday, Sept 16th at 6:00 P.M. I am told his heart just stopped. You can see more on Wishes For You.

I'm afraid I don't know who this is...do you have more details? And what is Wishes For You, a website?

GB is another gardening site that Derek was on. I just thought some of you may have known who he was. It's devided into sub-titles like "clematis", "roses", "peonies", "hobbies and crafts", and one called "wishes for you" that was used mainly to let members know that someone is sick/died. Some members posted about their own illness, or troubles. When you're a member of a site for a long while, you feel like some of these people are like family.

I knew a Derek from Britain. Wouldn't be him, would it?

No idea who Derek or GB are, but so sorry you've lost a friend.

Try these links. Was not familiar with Derek but I use this sight all the time for Clematis and a few other plants. A very good world wide forum.

Here is a link that might be useful: GardenBuddies
