For those of you who didn't know, Phinny over on Natural Yard got a message on Face book...
the poster known as "Shelia from Oz" here passed away on Jan. 30. She lived in Az. and was only 51 y.o. She was such a sweet person on all the boards where I've known her. RIP Sheila.

How sad and so young. RIP Sheila.
Thoughts and prayers are with this family during this time.
I too was very saddened to hear of her passing. Thoughts and prayers for her family and all those affected by her passing.

our 'family' has been spread out through several boards over the years.... it doesn't matter, tho, cuz as gardeners, what we loved was gardening and each other.... Sheila's passing affects all of us somehow..... diminishes each of us in some way.... but, as gardeners, we all know that a seed must fall to the ground and 'die' before it can become what it's supposed to be.....
