Wow, what a loss. I have purchased many a seed over the years from the 
Archibalds and could hardly resist trying something completely different 
and unusual, just because I happened to come across one of his 
descriptions of something I'd never heard about while slowly stepping 
through their extensive seed listing each time I got the next catalog in 
the mail. And I loved reading his front page preamble of what had gone 
on with both the seed collecting and in their lives since the last 
catalog. He didn't seem to mind divulging personal details about their 
lives, including his recent health problems. He will be missed.
