A fitting remembrance

Phyllis was a long-standing member of our golf league who died a few months ago.

A group of her friends got together and looked for a way to appropriately honor and remember Phyllis.  They hit on the idea of having a tree planted at the golf course in her honor.

This tree was planted at the beginning of the golf season in memory of Phyllis.  It is to the left of the fairway near the first hole’s tee. (A plaque has since been placed at its base with her name on it.)

Whenever I approach the first tee and notice “Phyllis’ tree”, I can see her smiling face and can picture her teeing off  from that very spot.

What a wonderful way to honor a golfer.  I know Phyllis would be so pleased.

    Beth — I’m sure they are. And her friends did it on their own — they didn’t ask the league to contribute. Their reasoning was that if the league did something in her honor, it would have to do something whenever anyone else died from then on. Good friends — to Phyllis AND the league.

    Christy — I thought it was a wonderful idea too — and was really surprised at how prominently it was placed.

    Cheryl — I thought so too — so fitting.
