TWO YEARS AGO, I received a phone call from American Forests' former board chair, Lynda Webster. Her husband, Judge William H.
Lynda sent a letter to Judge Webster's closest friends and family letting them know of the birthday gift.
With Lynda leading the charge, they collectively planted 300 trees in a park, along streets and even in the backyards of Webster Groves residents.
As the Websters prepared to depart, the curator asked a favor in return.
Happy to learn of a major, respected local resource, the Websters contacted the planetarium director shortly after they returned home.
Webster, who together with his wife, Marjorie, served for 29 years as curators of this collection.
Webster laid him to rest yesterday, a month after he disappeared and a little more than a week after his body was found near an abandoned home in Providence.
Webster after he was reported missing on March 13 went to a Northboro motel and found a bloody crime scene, along with evidence that a body had been dropped from a window and moved from the area, police reports said.
