I learned this afternoon that Astor had to have his foot amputated last Sunday(Febr 9th)due to complications from his cancer treatments. This has not been a good year for Astor with the loss of his wife in June and now this. If you wanted to send him a card he is in room 6023 at Rex
Hospital in Raleigh North Carolina. The address is 4420 Lake Boone Trail Raleigh NC 27607 I’m sure this would help to lift his spirits. He has given those of us in the rose world so many beautiful roses, it only seems right that we would give him our prayers and best wishes now.
