Sad news.

Loveplants2 8b Virginia Beach, VirginiaFebruary 13, 2013

I was just informed through another Plumeria forum that Luc Vannoorbeek passed away after a brief illness . This news was shared from Hetty Ford

He will be sadly missed and I want to send my condolences to Carol and her family as well as all of his friends.

May he rest in Plumeria heaven...

God bless you, Luc

I just found out myself. What a terrible loss! Luc was a great guy. I am just glad I had the pleasure of meeting him and Carol last summer. The plumeria world will surely miss him!

This is very sad news! So sorry for Carol. I've only ordered a couple of plumerias from Florida Colors but I know lots of people on this forum have ordered trees from them for years.

Oh, that is terrible news! I'm so sad for Carol--what a wonderful pair in the plumeria world they were!

Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Florida Colors family.

Laura, thanks for letting us know.

Oh my gosh. We visited him and Carol last year and he was just a wonderful person. I just can't believe this. He will definitely be sorely missed by the plumeria world.

Thanks for letting us know, Joan

I am so sorry to hear this! Although I have never met Luc, I have talked to him on the phone and even learned a thing or two! My deepest condolences to Carol and family.

Yes, sad news, indeed.

I have never ordered from Carol and Luc but I truly hate to hear when things like that happen. From all of you here my understanding is that they are truly wonderful people. Losing loved ones is so sad. I pray that Carol, their family, and all who knew him find comfort and peace in his passing.

Oh no!! I never got a chance to order one from Luc yet! I have spoken to Carol twice and both times she was very patient and helpful.

I'm so sorry to hear of this horrible news. Praying for Carol and her family.
