Dear Uncle Adam,
I am sorry you never got to meet me or my younger sister Olivia who is seven. My 11th Birthday is today which I share with your mom and your mom's sister Aunt Beverly's daughter Joy who all were born on October 17th. We plan to plant a tree - a "Wonderful" variety Pomegranite tree in your memory. They are beautiful, have non-invasive root systems, like to be left alone, and bear a ton of great fruit. Your younger sister, Lisa (my mommie) told us stories about how your mother and my mom and you would wait every fall for the pomegranite season and eat them while they were around. This was a really long time ago though when you lived on the upper west side of Manhattan on West 98th street. We will name this tree "Adam" in your memory. I bet you will even be there when we plant it in the ground.
Love,Alexandra (11) and Olivia (7)
