CHESTON--Morris Jr.,

The board of directors and staff of the Garden Conservancy mourn the loss of our former Vice President of the Board - a legal expert, avid horticulturist, philanthropist, civic leader, and dear friend. His commitment to community service extended from health and cultural organizations in Philadelphia to state and national organizations. Morris was co-leader of our endowment campaign, host of garden-study tours and Open Days at his homes in Pennsylvania and Maine, and wise and witty counselor for many of our programs. We send our deepest condolences to Cynthia and all of his family and friends.
