My heart is broken by the loss of our beloved Sal. Truly the last great renaissance man who knew how to live life to the fullest. Though I will miss his head shakes while I report the woes of my latest gardening attempts, I will feel his presence whenever I am surrounded by nature... or a glass of Grifone. Sal, my friend, you will be deeply missed.
