I know that trip was a huge highlight for him. He talked about meeting you often.Wow, what away to start the day. I had the pleasure of meeting Grimmy and his wife Crystal last year, they drove all they way from Pine Mountain, GA (they were visiting Calloway Gardens) to Mobile, just to visit me and see my trees. He was very nice and really genuine person, the world will be a little less brighter without his being here.
Our sincerest condolences for your loss, Crystal. He wrote admiringly of you, always writing “Wife” with a capital W.?. Think I need to refer to my Wife the same way.I would like to thank Greg again for posting this sad news; and thank all who have left their heartfelt thoughts and admiration for Ed. I cannot express how much it has meant to me. He was a truly wonderful person.
@Mrs.Grimmy Have no doubt he was loved and valued. For me real friends are rare. I would like to think I could count him in that number. Thanks for coming on here and please message me if you ever feel the need.I would like to thank Greg again for posting this sad news; and thank all who have left their heartfelt thoughts and admiration for Ed.

You made me think again about the void that Grimmys passing has left here. I wasn't a close friend, as you were, but did speak to him a handful of times on his offered helpline. His patience and common sense advice, offered to new and inexperienced people as myself, was delivered without reproach or criticism. Just offered. Plus, he was fun to talk to. Just a good guy, that will be greatly missed.I met grimmy on here a year and a half ago and we became close. My son and I even took a trip down to see him and meet Crystal and he was a amazing man and Crystal a great girl. He opened his house to me like we knew one another for 20 years. He became my mentor when it came to bonsai and one of my best friends. I learned so much from him , not only in bonsai but in life. I spoke to him on a daily basis for over a year and what a amazing person he was. I just wanted to post this so everyone knew what a special person both him and crystal are. But in the end the only thing I can say is. I miss my friend. I love you grim and after this momentary life is over I will see you again. Rest well my friend.
