Don't Cut Down that Tree

In the yard of the farmhouse that my grandfather grew up in stood a pear tree for more than 100 years. Over the years people have wanted to chop it down for one reason or another. Grandpa always said, "No."

The morning that Grandpa died a storm blew through the area and that old tree was uprooted. Kind of ironic.


  1. Looks like Gramps wanted to take the tree with him.... Must need pears in heaven!

  2. I guess he did, Susan. Grandpa grew the best of everything so I can see how they'd need his pears in heaven!
