I was so saddened to read of William Johnson's death ("Master gardener, Daily News columnist, William Johnson dies at 70," The Daily News, Feb. 16).

His columns were always a highlight of the week since you knew that you would be getting sound horticultural and gardening advice delivered with warmth and wisdom; and his leadership of the Galveston County Master Gardener's program will continue to benefit Galveston County for decades to come.

We're all richer for Johnson's scientific knowledge, his dedication to our community and his generous spirit.

Thank you, Johnson. May you rest in peace.
