    Default I was thinking

    Of getting one of the great pictures she had taken over the summer blown up and framed. Alison did say about the pictures that is how she will remember Alan.

    I can contribute through Pay pal

    1. Generally speaking, would you be able to attend the meet-up?

    Not very likely.

    2. Vote for one:

    a) tree
    b) locket
    c) other

    Probably the tree, but I'll go with whatever.

    3. How would most like to contribute to the financial gift:

    a) paypal to paypal
    b) personal check
    c) directly to Alison

    Personal check. I don't have a paypal account.

    1. Generally speaking, would you be able to attend the meet-up?

    Yes. I'd be coming on I-70 E to St. Louis and would be happy to pick up anyone along the way that needed a ride.

    2. Vote for one:

    a) tree
    b) locket
    c) other

    I think a tree is a great idea, if she's going to stay in the area. Friends of mine did that in remembrance of their father, but ended up moving several years later and leaving the tree behind was HARD for them.

    A locket could be wonderful, but again, if she doesn't already have a special piece of jewelry that she wears daily already from Al.


    3. How would most like to contribute to the financial gift:

    a) paypal to paypal
    b) personal check
    c) directly to Alison

    Paypal would be awesome and easy to do

    Default For me...

    I probably wouldn't be able to make it to St. Louis (as much as I would love to go).

    I vote for a tree. Whether it be at home or at the cemetary (sometimes allowed). I really like living things and we have trees planted at our house for each of our girls.

    Paypal or check, either one is fine with me.

    Thanks again,
    Renee

    Default My answers

    1. I would love to attend, but it won't be possible.

    2. Vote for one:

    a) tree
    b) locket
    c) other

    I'm up for whatever. My only thought about a tree planted at their house is that if someday she does leave the house she shared with him, leaving the tree might make it even harder. For my nephew, they planted a tree for him at a local arboretum.

    3. personal check

    Default My answers...

    1. Sorry, will have a new baby to attend to (I hope). But it's a neat idea.

    2. Tree

    I like this b/c it's something that her kids can share in too. Love the idea of a plaque or a bench to go with it. I wonder if Alison's minister (or Alison later) could help figure out a location - like the cemetery or a local park. Maybe they had a special spot they went to! You guys going out there could have a little dedication ceremony around the planting; that would be special.

    3. Paypal but I don't really care.

    Thinking about Alison today...I was looking over her old posts and looks like it was only a year and a half ago (or so) that Al began treatments. Every day is such a gift; I'm still so sad for her family...
