Not sure what to say?

When Mr. Andrus and his wife Marion created the Marion Andrus Learning Center children's education facility at the Arboretum decades ago, who could have imagined how many thousands of lives would be touched. The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum sends deepest sympathies to his family at this time.
