We were neighbors to Heidi & Hugo for 20 years and they were special folks. Hugo would often share the bounty of his beautiful garden with us, and give us new kids pointers for our little garden. His yard and flowers were kept immaculate. We remember him with tall boots and a 10 gallon pail putting water on his plants. He always had time to stop and chat. May his garden in heaven continue to bring joy.
