William Curtis Tellman's memorial grove
27 April 1940 - 30 November 2008

William Curtis Tellman grove

This grove of trees is being planted by his friends to honour the memory of an extraordinary and much loved man. Will treasured all things beautiful and none more than the beauty of nature. It is the hope of the friends who are donating these trees in his name that they will grow as noble and true as Will himself, and that they will give as much pleasure as he did to all who knew him.

Dear Will, here are some more trees for your special grove, as a Christmas present for 2010. Love, Mary

A peaceful grove for friends to rest in peace. Dearest Will: I hope to walk in your grove one day. Your friendship was one of the greatest gifts in my life. Love, Tui A Blessing for the Woods by Michael S. Glaser Before I leave, almost without noticing, before I cross the road and head toward what I have intentionally postponedÂ‐ Let me stop to say a blessing for these woods: for crows barking and squirrels scampering, for trees and fungus and multi-coloured leaves, for the way sunlight laces with shadows through each branch and leaf of tree, for these paths that take me in, for these paths that lead me out. Until our own paths cross again, Will.  Mary In loving memory of our own Will So here we are, honoring our mutual friend, who lived a life of challenge with grace and humor, with love for us all. To Will: may you be in peace and wherever there may be immortal souls, may you be joined with all of your friends and loves who passed before you, may we hear your breath in the sound of trees talking in the wind, and your laughter in the sound of eagles soaring in the sky. Blessed be, dear William, and blessed are we who knew him at all. With love from Richard Janson Vaya con dios, Will. It was a pleasure to know you and call myself your friend.

Your grove of trees

The trees in this grove will be carefully planted in protected sites in the Scottish Highlands where they will create homes for wildlife and forests for the future.
