It is with a heavy heart that I share this sad news.

Edward-A-Brzostowicz 1954-2018

So many members on this site have contributed so much, have shared so much, have been part of this community for so long... and we have never met in person. I am glad that he was part of our group. Things won't be the same around here without him :(

He was a fellow US Army veteran. I will think of him when I am with my trees.

Damn, that hurts. Solid individual and I think would have been a great friend. Had the kind of "working man's class" that is right up my alley.

I'll miss him....until we meet again, Grimmy, shake up the next life so when I get there, the party will be in full swing!!!

Love and light....:(:(:(:(

So sad to hear. Do we know what happened ? Was he in ill health? I'm sorry I'm not more connected.

I read that with a heavy heart. I heard from him about a month ago, after I inquired if everything was OK, since he hadn't been around here in awhile. He said he was helping out with his wife's ailing Grandma, never intimated anything was wrong with him. :( I was one of the probably many on the 1-800-call-Grimmy list. He was a joy to talk to , and a great help. I will raise a glass in his honor tonight, thanks for everything Grimmy. :(:(:(

Dang. He was always willing to offer a kind word and help anyone. This place will be lessened by his absence.

Bummer. Grim was a nice guy who was always willing to offer his advice based off his own experiences. RIP.

Sad news. I never met him in person, but knew him for years online.

Deepest sympathy for the family. He and his bonsai savvy live on here on the site.

WHAT THE FUCK!

WOW! Man.

I actually just messaged him about a week ago, and thought it was odd he didn't respond.

Wow, I was on the call Grimmy list too. I didn't like to just randomly call him, so normally I messaged him ahead of time. No wonder this time there wasn't a response. Man this sucks.

RIP @GrimLore

He was the first person to reach out personally to help when I first joined Bnut. Don't know many people that give time out of their day to talk on the phone with complete stranger about trees. Grimmy was one of the good ones and he will be missed. Sad day
