My name is Joy Phillips and I am one of Vaughn Banting’s four sisters. I want to express our sincere appreciation to Will Heath and the AoB site and members for hosting and supporting the Vaughn Banting Memorabilia Auction. The auction has given us an opportunity to place Vaughn’s bonsai-related possessions into the hands of people who share his love of Asian art.

As “non-bonsai people”, the four of us were at a loss to know how to disperse Vaughn’s collections. Vaughn’s long-time friend, Guy Guidry, mentioned the Art of Bonsai site and put me in touch with Will Heath. From there, it was like working with an old friend. Will has made suggestions, clarified bonsai terms and generally made this rather difficult time a lot easier.

Each of the people who bid on the auction items communicated quickly with me and had some very kind words to say about our brother, whom we miss very badly. This entire process has reconfirmed our perception that the bonsai community cared for and respected Vaughn, which gives us comfort, too.

Thanks again, Art of Bonsai!!

We all lost when he left us.
Friend, Teacher, Inspiration to go beyond what we thought we could ever do.
Please know that you are not grieving alone, and that we all are as well.
Thank You and your Sisters for sharing things that brought him pleasure and please know that each item will be treasured.
Irene Britton
