memorial tree

We stopped to look at this memorial tree yesterday on the side of the road, fully decorated from the branch tops with Christmas decorations. From the number of tiny bears and toys we expected to find it a memorial for a young child. When actually it was for a boy, 17, who died over a year ago. The back of the tree covered in many snapshots of him with friends, family and pets.

How nice of you to stop by and pause. I guess this sort of memorial is universal. Even in our small rural community I pass by two on a regular basis...always sending healing thoughts to all who have been touched by the tragedy of loss.

Yes, they are everywhere, making me glad my sons don't yet drive.
