Lovely idea. When my first husband dies the college where he worked asked me to plant a tree and they put a simple marble plaque on it. It is a flowering cherry and the college is used for the music school the children attend on Saturday mornings so I get to pass it each week. Very much keeping memories 'alive'.

Kendall, your little oak will grow to suit the site far more successfully than a larger tree in much the same way that Utah grew to fit his own big-hearted world.

You chose very well.

I have posted a prototype here, on Flickr! Please veiw and let me know by e mail or PM if this is acceptable.

Bear in mind that the 'rock' doesn't have to be a polished slab...it can be a 'thunder egg'/glacier rock, or nearly anything 'hard' like marble or granite. Slate is out. So is anything crystalline like quartz.

I suspect however that if the surface is not flat it might cost more. Don't know for sure about that tho.

Kendall, I don't have your email anymore. Mine is sorcha at netcommander dot com

OK, gang...I talked to Mark. He has a piece of slightly polished light grey granite, about a foot square, except that it isn't 'square'. It isn't 'oval' either, but more of a square with rounded corners, and 4" thick. Weighs about 25 lbs. I can pick it up EASILY. It would cost 'us' about $100-150 for the rock and the lettering.

If I do this right, it will look something like the below:

Update.

Kendall found a larger sapling and that seems to have survived the move.

He has a cousin in Machias who has a lady friend who owns the local stone masonry business and has made the stone. They visited yesterday and the stone has now been laid in place.

I do, Art. Kendall and Jacqui have been working on it too, from the beginning. It's called "Singing Through the Hard Times," and I'm very hopeful it will be out before long - we're pushing to get it out as soon as possible. I've spent the last several days working on the liner notes. It's going to be a wonderful collection, with several Mudcatters involved.

That said, these things are always subject to big delays, so I'm hesitant to start naming dates right now. I should have better information to give everyone within a couple of weeks, including ()I hope) a solid release date!
