Memorial Tree

with 2 comments

Last fall the Child Development Center (the pre-school Adelaide & Jack have each attended) planted a memorial tree in honor of Sarah.  In a cool coincidental tie in, the tree was purchased with proceeds from their annual school photo sales.  They installed the plaque a month or so ago, but it’s been cold, snowy, dark, and cold and snowy, so was just able to take a photo today.  The colorful Arbor in the background was built by Sarah a few years ago for their playground.

Also, for any that might not have seen yet, I asked Joey Los, a Missouri sculptor that sells her art at Bluestem Missouri Crafts, to make a floral piece for the top of Sarah’s memorial stone.  She delivered that in mid-December and I was able to install it easily on one of the rare warm days.  Photos of the floral sculpture are below.   Those photos and more of the memorial stone can all be viewed here.
