So many wonderful memories of us together. Identifying flowers, birds and butterflies. Thank you for teaching our hiking group the history of Hoffmaster and leading our hikes. I still see your inquisitive expession when you ask "How do you know?" I learned from you and you learned from me and together we would study and find the answers. I know you're on some path in glory land, so, carry on my dear friend in nature. Janet Helmer
