Always Something There To Remind Me

When Ann passed away she left an enormous hole in our lives. For her sons, David and William, she had been both mother and father for most of their lives, raising them to be the kind, loving gentlemen they are today. To her husband Keith she was wife, lover and friend, supporting and encouraging him in his life choices. Her grandson Max was her overwhelming pride and joy and her daughter-in-law Helen was the perfect partner for Bill and made her close family complete for the last years of her life. For her sisters, Mary and I, and her brother Robert, she was not only our big sister but the mother we needed. She gave us the love, support, guidance and encouragement our own mothers couldn't. She was always there even when we lived long distances apart. Ann loved nature and going for long woodland walks. She was so happy when they moved into a house with a big garden where she could get her fingers into the dirt and grow things, creating an ideal environment for birds and wildlife. Losing Ann, first to Alzheimer's and then completely has been hard for all of us, her family and friends. I found it particularly difficult at Christmas and on her birthday when we would normally give gifts. Taking flowers to the cemetery doesn't feel right, they die but Ann was so alive and vibrant. So,I have decided to establish this grove of trees which will continue to grow and which can be added to by anyone who would like to add their memories of Ann.

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.
