I have had a letter from two of our dear friends telling me as Peg loved trees so much they have dedicated three trees to Peg's memory.
There are at Millhampton Wood,Ombersley,Worcestershire,this being the nearest wood to Birmingham where trees can be dedicated.
I have a very nice certificate "In loving memory of Peggy."
What a lovely thought from two dear friends.

Dear Norman, that's such a lovely idea. Your friends are so thoughtful.

You have the certificate to keep, and will you be able to visit the trees and remember Peg? I think that would be such a peaceful thing to do.

(Sorry if it's too far, don't know that area of the country very well).

Love,

Dear Norman,

We lost a boy at our Special School to Leukaemia. It was a terrible time for all of us. We planted a tree in the school gardens, in his memory. That was 20 years ago. It is still known as Stephen`s tree even now, when not many staff, and certainly no children know who Stephen was.

Yours and Peg`s friends have made a truly thoughtful gesture. Peg`s trees will grow and flourish in her memory.

Love xx

Hi Norman ... what a beautiful tribute. We have a 'Woodland Cemetry' on the outskirts of Manchester. It is a place of natural beauty and peace where peoples' lives can be celebrated in a quiet and contemplative way ...

I hope you are able to take much comfort from this,

Love, Karen, x

How thoughtful. Norman it will be such a comfort to you.

I had trees planted (through The Woodland Trust) for both my parents, but not until some years after their deaths.

I had two trees planted in my Len's memory. Some of the trees are chosen for their medicinal properties. I think it is a lovely tribute.

I am glad you have such good friens Norman, and thanks for sharing with us.

Hi Norman

I think planting trees in memory of a loved one is a great idea.

I had never heard of it before, now I think that is what, I would want.

I shall tell my family about this.

Hello Norman

That's a thoughtful tribute to your dear Peg.

They do a similar scheme in Scotland too, a close relative of mine has a tree planted in his memory there, where he spent many happy times.

Nice to think that the generations to come will be able to enjoy the trees and we are giving something back to the world.

Sorry

Hello Norman, I'm so sorry to have been away from TP when you lost Peg. You are showing us the fruits from your years of caring by being there for others. Only the very special people such as you and Connie who have lost a loved one after years of caring can show there's light at the end of the tunnel by shedding a little on us.
May you both be able to savour happy memories of your loved ones like a fine wine from the cellars of the mind.
May I wish you both peace of mind and good health, God bless. Padraig

Hi Padraig

Dear Norman.

This is lovely, I think planting a tree in memory of a loved one is perfect. The nicest way possible of remembering them.

I'm very pleased for you.
