Tree has been taken away.

For anyone who is bereaved or no longer providing care.
Dad has just died and the funeral will be held on the 12th September.
He complained about the council's tree on the verge at various points since 1999 as it was causing problems and the council has just taken it down.
If he can see the funeral from any afterlife I am sure he will be smiling when the hearse arrives and leaves the house next Thursday.
It is a pity the tree was not taken down while he was alive.

Oh, I definitely think that your Dad will be smiling when he goes past the 'missing tree' next week and probably rolling his eyes at the timing.

Will be thinking of you on the 12th.
