This beautiful HUGE weeping cherry tree stands at the corner of a lot where my sister’s grave is. The blossomed branches seem to be reaching down towards where she lays – the cherry blossoms are weeping over her grave. My sweet sister did not live long, she was born March 8th 1955 and died March 11th 1955. Every March we remember her especially, but in April I love to visit her grave because of the beautiful flowering trees.

April is my favorite month because of the change in the weather, the crisp fresh air, the beautiful flowering trees and shrubs that pop out everywhere. I dedicate this beautiful tree to her and her remembrance, especially since the tree itself seems to be reaching to her.

Sept 2016 update – Since I first posted this photo, both of my parents have joined my sister at this grave site. My mom passed in November 2013, my Dad in August 2014. So this tree now really weeps over all three of their graves. I miss my parents so much, but I know they rejoice to be with my sister in heaven.
