Many of you, especially in California, probably knew Parker Sanderson, who 
worked at UC Davis before moving to Portland and co-founding Cistus Design 
Nursery with his longtime partner, Sean Hogan. Parker died ten days ago 
after a long struggle with melanoma and complications of diabetes. A 
memorial gathering is planned for May 20; details can be found on the 
nursery's website, For those who wish to write to Sean, his 
mailing address is 2827 NE 11th Avenue, Portland, Oregon 97212-3215.

It's very sad for everyone who knew Parker, a brilliant plantsman whose wry 
viewpoint always enlivened conversations. Despite lifelong health problems, 
he explored remote places and worked strenuously and with great dedication.
