Thank you for the info on "Bulbs of the Eastern Mediterranean", and I look
forward to obtaining a copy.

But I especially thank you for the sentiments expressed in the last
paragraph of your email.  It is all so complex and troubling on many
levels, but I concur with your thoughts and actions.  With what very
limited interactions I've had with you, it is your way to brush aside
compliments, but I think you're a wonderful human being.  Thank you for all
you do.
