Want old fashioned Dianthus/Pink

Santiago, Chile(Zone 9b)

I am looking for these seeds for a friend. He has become nostalgic with the memory of those small, either pale pink or greyish/white double flowers with frilled petals. He says he needs to smell their lovely scent in his garden. His Granny even made a lotion with these flowers.

My seed-list is posted here: http://davesgarden.com/t/439190/

My heart is broken.

Last week I got these seeds from gumlla in Pakistan. I was very happy to be able to surprise my friend with these seeds next time we would meet for another High-Lift truck maintenance course (where I translate the teachers coming from Germany and UK). Hugo was the representative for these trucks in Valdivia (southern Chile) and never missed the courses.

I am still under shock. I was watching the news and learned that Hugo had a car accident with his wife and 5 children on his way to a ski centre in Argentina (close to the border). Hugo and one of his 15 year old twin daughters died in the accident and his joungest boy is severely injured.

It's hard to accept that this gentle very tall big man with the innocent smile, always willing to help is not going to be with us next course.

It's even harder for that poor wife that lost her great partner and a daughter and is suffering for her youngest one.

Please join me in prayer for Hugo Giunio and his family.

gumlla, thank you for your words and prayers. The seeds you sent me for Hugo will now be grown to become sort of a memorial among my plants.

Baa, I really do appreciate your good thoughts for Hugo's family. Guess they really need them.

Thanks.

Ursula.my heart poors out to you and the family of your friend Hugo.Keeping all of you in my prayers.

Thanks, Bitty. It is hard to accept when such young people die; Hugo was just 45 years old and his daughter only 15. However, being sure they are both in our Lord's reign makes it a tiny bit easier every day.

Hi Ursula,just wanted to check in with you to see how everyone is doing?How is Hugo's daughter doing?Still saying prayers for all.

Thanks Bitty, that's very sweet of you. I do not have direct contact to Hugo's family, but understand that the kid's recovery has been steady although slow. Hugo was a much loved member in his community and I'm sure his friends and relatives will take good care of his wife and children.
