I will miss seeing Mr. Cantrell at the Reidsville Library where he came to work on his research projects. He had an amazing knowledge of gardens and herbs, and his library of electronic materials he had gathered on this subject was one of the most organized I have ever seen. He carried hard candies with him, and he was in the habit of leaving a few on my desk each time he came in. He was very special. I send all my best to his family. Ingrid Hayes
