[Geology2] R.I.P. Fred Ward

Charlotte Ward has been announced that her husband Fred Ward has died which is of interest to those of you who knew the man or know of his work:

"Ward developed his gemstone series for National Geographic into nine books under his own imprint, Gem Book Publishers: Diamonds (also in Russian), Emeralds, Jade, Opals, Pearls, Phenomenal Gems, Rubies and Sapphires, and Gem Care. Morphing into a gem dealer and a gemologist and a proud president and board member of DCGIA, Ward earned a GIA Graduate Gemologist diploma in 1990 in the shortest time ever recorded, 90 days."

Dear Friends,

Here is the obituary that I wrote for Fred. who died last week.
Chris and I took care of him to the very end here in our home. We had wonderful, if minimum, hospice care for  over a year.
Love, Charlotte
