A Tree And Tears

I opened what appeared to be junk mail and the tears started to flow,Debbie had asked what I was crying about and I showed her , her eyes swelled with tears also.
A tree was planted in my moms honor in one of our national forests .
Mamary-Drukin Funeral Home And The Batesville Casket Co. with the cooperation of the Forest Service has planted a tree in my mothers name as a living memorial.
I thought this was great and wanted to share it with all of you.
And as always, thanks for listening!

I think that is a special tribute. Bates Casket Co. did that for my husband, too. I still have the letter I received from them ten years ago.
