  [Aroid-l] RES: Death of Julius Boos
From: "Eduardo" <eduardo.goncalves at inhotim.org.br> on 2010.07.12 at 17:29:58(21176)
Dear aroiders,

I can´t write properly right now, because my mind is a little disturbed by
this message. Even considering that we were already aware about his state,
is hard to wonder our world without our good friend Julius and I confess I
have been avoiding this subject in my own thoughts. You only had to spend a
few hours in a free conversation with him to fall in love with that "Julius ´
way of life". His passion for plants (and for people), his charming sense of
humour and his deep sense of humanity. It is really hard to imagine that
Julius lived in Trinidad, since his heart was bigger (and warmer) than
Venezuela! Our chubas will never look the same without him. Even considering
that we have lived pretty far from each other, Julius was the best friend I
have ever had. The world lost a fantastic naturalist and we lost one of the
most complete human beings I have ever met in my whole life. It is a sad day
for the aroid people...

My deepest condolences,
