I am sorry for all the times I complained about your branches scattering my back yard after a windy day. You really were a good tree and provided the best shade for those hot summer days. I am sorry I didn't tell you more often how wonderful you were, maybe if I had you would have had the strength to withstand all the snow that fell on Friday.
Instead at 11:30 pm you buckled under the weight of the wet heavy snow and split into three pieces.
After a lot of work to get you off of the fence and our trampoline you now lay in many pieces in the backyard waiting to be hauled away.
We already miss you, there is a large empty space in our back yard where you used to stand.
I am sorry it had to end this way!!
