“…the one thing that can never be taken from us, even by death, is the love we give away before we go.”  Rev. Dr. Forrest Church

My sister would have been 41 on March 20th.  We spent the day with family and friends.  I wanted to give her some sort of present but I couldn’t think of a gift that could possibly represent everything she meant and continues to mean to me.  So we bought a maple tree that is supposed to have spectacular, long-lasting fall color and will grow to about 40 feet tall and we planted it north of the farmhouse.  Knowing my sister, she would have been thrilled to receive a tree as a birthday present.  May it grow big and tall so that her grandkids will, one day, swing from its branches.
