Lori has decided she would rather have two smaller trees than one big one.
To those below, who sent donations to help cover the cost of trees and planting by landscapers from Lori's town, thank you!! Some of you know me personally, some of you know Lori, and some of you helped because you knew my writing, or Lori's, personally.

On May 20, I sent $450 to Cranch Landscapers (I sent a bit less, actually, because Mrs. Cranch made a donation as well, bringing the total down a bit).
I'm grateful to all involved, and grateful to Lori Odhner for her continuing inspiration.
