A Tribute to Luzanne

Hello All:  Rich, Sara and I thought you'd like to share our July 4th tribute

to Luzanne. We have planted this very lovely willow tree to remember her

in her own backyard next to her raspberrys. There is also a "time capsule"

at the roots with a record of our family, events at this time in the world,

and family photos. The tree will grow tall and proud, as was Luzanne in life. 

Please keep in touch!  Al, Richard and Sara.
