    this really hasn't sunk in yet. i'm sure he'll be a huge loss to his entire family.

    I mentioned in passing one time that I liked Meyer lemons. A couple of weeks later I got a big box in the mail. Inside was a one gallon pot containing a Meyer lemon.

    Typical Alex. Remember when he wanted to press fruit for wine and bought an antique fruit press. Too much work. He was ready to toss it in the pond. I mentioned DH always wanted one. That Christmas it arrived at our house. :love

    I am going to miss his funny take on the world around him. He got up and lived everyday of his life seems like. I’m glad I saved seeds from the NYer tomatoes, think I will plant some every year now.

    I saw this picture and when I saw it I kind of mentally thought, Alex has aged some. I wonder if the flu caused something else to happen to him? I guess does not matter, it still would be flu caused it.

    It might be a while before the family can compose an obituary for Alex. All we can do is hope.

    I loved the story about his dad refusing to walk the dog on a leash.

    Me too! I bet his dad would be amazed at how many people "know" him in distant lands. I loved his cantankerous nature, especially at his age.
