Dr. Cseka wants memorial garden

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Dr. Leland Cseka is the only "plant" guy right now in the biology department of UA Huntsville. He worked closely with Dr. Gopi Podilla and Dr. Maria Ragland-Davis.

He wants to build a memory garden. A place where the fallen member of the department will "grow" through the life of the plants they worked with.

He's kept plants given to him by Dr. Podilla and Dr. Ragland-Davis, and he feels a public garden is the perfect place for them.

"My concept of the garden would provide a place to have a quite place to reflect," said Cseka.

Dr. Cseka echoes sentiments made by other colleagues.

His students have given him the drive to charge on, and they continue to help him heel.
