Durris was such a good friend to my parents, Ralph & Jennie Adams, and was so incredibly knowledgeable of anything flora & fauna! I’m sure he has shared his wealth of knowledge with his children and that you all share the same love and respect for nature as Durris.
Rest in peace dear friend & enjoy the garden of heaven!
