hey there say, a land-hero, in a way, you might say... kept the land from
being turned into silicon valley building and blacktop, etc...

i grew up when there was still a few farms and orchards, and sadly saw them 'vanish' and NEVER knew why--until i grew up, :O :(


wow, my mom would be so proud of him, >:D< am sending her the article, just in case she did not see it...

i saw very LATE, too... he died the last day of JANUARY 20014 (the 31st)
when i was praying for my daddy...

i will add some more links, when i can... i do not know?? if he called him a 'preservationist', or not--but he would NOT take money for his land and family home...
