    Hello Everyone,

    After speaking with another friend ( fellow A to Z'er) and wishing that there was something more to do for Ellen's family, I was told about a memorial tree.

    I just ordered a memorial tree online to be planted in Ellen's memory from the A to Z teacher forum. The tree will be planted in Rochester. I used the Camp Haccamo address that was posted on her obiutuary, and I'm sure her family will get the info.

    I just wanted to do something lasting, and this seemed like a good way to do it. It symbolizes "life" to me. I hope that her family is notified and that it can be a symbol of her spirit and the mark she left on us.

    I put down Rochester, but also specified Webster, NY. Which I think is the town where she lived. That would be even better. I haven't gotten any emails.. so I'm thinking it's fine. I will keep you posted.

    Her family will get a certificate and a special note from us!

    Sorry it's taken me a few days to respond to this... We did see this post the day it went up, but have been sort of caught up in things at home at the moment...

    My parents and I just wanted to say thank you for this gesture... We really appreciate all the support, and kind words and thoughts we have been recieving.

    Miss Frizzle, What you did is so wonderful. We just lost our son and he was the director of a daycare. I'm sure planting the tree in Ellen's memory is very special to her family. You are indeed a very special person.
