OT PrinceAlbert

ltcollins1949(9a TX)September 15, 2012

I just received a phone call from Barbra a/k/a honeybunny2, and she asked me to let everyone know that she received a call from Betty and that PrinceAlbert passed away. All I know is that his body closed down on him, i.e. something to do with his pancreas. Barbra doesn't have assess to a computer righ now, so I'm posting to let everyone know. I'm sure that after she gets back home in the next day or two, that she will have more information for you all!

I am soooo very sorry to hear this. Prayers are flying for Betty and the family during this sad time.

Thanks Linda, for letting us know. Although I just got to meet him two times at the San Antonio plant swap I have very fond memories of those meetings and I enjoyed his posts. I will always treasure the plants that he and Betty passed along for my garden.

Albert, I warmly wish you Godspeed in life's next great adventure.

Kathy, good idea!

Here's another photo of Betty and Albert from that same swap, April 2012. Barbra is in the middle.
