Dear All,

I too feel very sad hearing Jack has died even though after the stroke we 
couldn't really communicate with him any more. I worked with him on the IBS 
Publication BULBS which I felt was a real privilege. And when I had my 
first stint doing the Topic of the Week on the old IBS list I could always 
count on Jack to help me out with an introduction. His posts were so full 
of information. But beyond that his love of flowers and never ending quest 
to understand his plants better was always apparent. He was generous with 
time, seed, information, encouragement. The world was made richer by his 
presence. Lucky for all of us he left behind the books and articles he 
wrote and all those seeds and plants he shared with so many of us.
