Guest Book Highlights

January 22, 2014 "A Brilliant Man: A Greater Loss:" - Patricia Whiteside, Appraiser (Palm Beach,, FL)
September 05, 2012 "A bit of John and Phyllis' legacy also lives on in the form of a pristine, 3-kilometer stretch of coastline in Yucatan called Pez Maya. In 2003, they gave Amigos de Sian Kaan, a Mexican environmental agency and Nature Conservancy affiliate I worked with, the cornerstone gift that permitted the purchase of this strategic parcel that serves as a buffer between encroaching development and the UNESCO-designated Sian Kaan Biosphere. The Biosphere, in turn, supports the health of the surrounding lagoon and reef system, including the renowned fishing spot, Boca Paila Inlet, which abuts Pez Maya. They will be remembered by all who enjoy this priceless ecosystem. For info," - David Skipp (Miami, FL)
