List of Fairmount Roses presented to the Board in 2003

Sadly, I was informed 2 years ago that this list plus the many years of notes and reports I had prepared and given to the Board of Fairmount Cemetery, at no cost, was lost. I see now why I was told years ago by people who knew I was not charging Fairmount for my work  that people don't value what they get for free. I'd love to have a dollar for every hour I spent at the cemetery, and researching the roses I catalogued there, over that delightful 12 years! It saddens me to think of the gems lost there needlessly due to my cautions not being heeded. John
