Re: Our dear friend LUBlub

Very sad indeed. No matter our occasional differences, Luigi and I shared many personal stories by PM or email. He loved life and was a constant positive spitit for me. His fight with cancer was a long one and we will always remember him fondly.

Re: Gamma sennin with flower

I believe Gamma Sennin are immortal beings and the toads are something magical - the flower is probably a chrysanthemum and I think there is a story about this type of flower representing longevity and rejuvenation?
