    I am very sad to hear of Dennis' passing; and he and I corresponded a bit and exchanged plants over the years.

    Jeremiah, if the roots look good as you say, the plants will bounce back in your care. I saw areas in South Australia that had seen brush fire; and yet those damn little plants persisted . . .

    Thanks guys,

    I talked to his wife and she said it was just one day he got up was in a great mood and said good bye to his wife, went to work. At work I guess his heart just stopped (Sudden Cardiac Arrest) and he was dead before anyone knew what had happened. He had always been it good shape and had no previous heart problems.

    None of the plants are available for trade at this time, his wife wanted me to hang on to them for a while. If everything goes well I should have plenty to trade in a year or so.

    Thanks,
    -Jeremiah-

    Wow, that's awful to hear.

    Him and I had been emailing back and forth a couple of months ago about me buying my first ceph from him, kinda sucks now knowing why he didn't get back to me.

    I did not know him as well as all of you I'm sure, but I am very sorry to hear that he passed.

    My thoughts go out to his family.

    That specimen I won Plant of The Month with in August came from Dennis a little more than a year ago; it was my first Cephalotus and I am particularly attached to, and proud of it. I am so sorry to hear of Dennis' passing. My condolences to his wife.

    no kidding. That's the 2nd case I've heard of that happening so far this year.
    what a shame.

    I was at a poker game here just after New Years this year.. Mike, one of my friends, got up and wandered onto the casino floor for a smoke. At which time his heart just stopped and he died right there.
    Same thing, no previous heart conditions or problems. And no signs of any oncoming heart distress.
    scary thought..

    Condolences to his family. Seems like the CP community has been losing a few lately for one reason or another.

    Dang, he grew nice Cephalotus, never spoke to him, just saw his plants, didn't even know his name. Just knew he grew nice Cephalotus.

    My thoughts go out to his family.
