didn 't have time to answer the last email that Steve sent me on 12 ...
I have read
several times the announcement of the death and I have used the translator to be
sure to understand.
Yes, that is very brutal and
Steve will be greatly missed.
I imagine Lynn, Julius, Patricia
and all the other friends who welcome Steve. They have many things to talk
about: new discoveries aroids, the culture of a particular plant, Etc ,....
Sincere condolences to his
Steve Lucas, a great member of the International Aroid Society,
passed away this morning. Many members and plant enthusiasts all over the
world have known Steve, as he loves to correspond with people about
plants. He had a great passion for plants and loved to share his hobby
with others. For the last several years he has been a huge advocate for
the IAS and has had great visions for seeing the society grow. He took it
upon himself to personally welcome each new member and learn about their
personal interests. He will be greatly missed by many.
