Memorial "Richard" Tree

Planted a tree yesterday after the funeral services in memoriam of my Uncle Richard. We chose this spot because actually every Saturday morning when he'd come over with my Dad (his twin) to pick up James to go garage selling and breakfast he would relieve himself right there... so in a way he marked his spot!:) Also it is where the road grader and backhoe are parked which he taught us to use and did a lot of work on our property for us. We chose a pine to signify his love for the outdoors, working outdoors, playing/camping up at the property in Tehachapi, fishing, walking his beloved Jack Russel "Jack", shooting guns....

A living tribute to Richard....as our memories grow so will the tree.
