Goodbye Harvey Frand...

October 3 1940-July 23 2009

After 30 years in retail, you don't always love everyone you deal with on a daily basis. It's a fact of life. Most are great, some are impossible and a very few are just so wonderful.
Sometimes clients are so kind and easy and fun that when I see them walking down the stairs into my store, I put everything else aside and just enjoy them.
Harvey came in on Saturdays, and loved flowers. He would come in and chat and browse and ask questions and listen, and be interested, and ulimately, be interesting. Harvey was a funny, kind and gentle soul. He was an Orchid kind of guy, which in my world is a cool thing...
I knew that Harvey worked on Battlestar Galactica, but it wasn't until after he passed that I realized he was"The Producer". I didn't know much about his personal life, and we weren't great friends...but I miss him & Saturdays haven't been the same since he's been gone.
When I am arranging the Orchids for his Vancouver memorial this weekend, I will be remembering him, and thinking of how he touched so many people in such a beautiful way.
My sincere sympathy to Bill, and all of Harvey's family & friends.
Rest in Peace

What a great gift & legacy to leave behind...that so many people thought so much of you.
