Alun Mortensen's Grove - for Alun,
Colleen and Bernadette

Alun Karl Mortensen

26th June 2018
Add to this grove

This is a grove for Alun. He left us on the 26th June 2018 at 52.
He often told me a story about a man that wandered about planting a forest of trees. It touched him, so much.
He said he has always wanted to plant a whole forest himself. He would love this.
Help me to keep a dream alive by planting a tree in his honour.
I love to think about his spirit living here in a wild forest.
Love Colleen x

This is love: to fly towards a secret sky, to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment. First to let go of life. Finally to take a step without feet. 5 years- WOOD.

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
Remembering you on your birthday Alun.

Every Christmas we would gather around your fake tree
with the woodland creatures u put in its branches,
I wish we were doing that this year but
I like to think of your grove of real trees and animals

God has a garden there's love all around.
There's healings and blessings on his glory ground.

...on each side of the river stood the Tree of Life,
bearing twelve crops of fruit,
yielding it's fruit every month.
And the leaves of the tree are for healing the nation.

Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow.
The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.

“There is always music amongst the trees…,
but our hearts must be very quiet to hear it.”

Dearest Ali,
you once told me when struggling to breath that oxygen was the greatest gift,
well you are now gifting the planet with more trees and more oxygen,
a beautiful dream becoming reality.
Donated by Bernadette
Thanks for preserving the trees and
helping to make my sweethearts dream come true.
We don't have a lot so this is a lovely way
to do something he would love and keep adding each year.
