A Mighty Oak

During the 26 years that Gerry and I have lived in our home, one of the (many) benefits has been driving or walking by an immense white oak tree every day. This tree was of truly massive proportions and it was always so carefully tended by the homeowner of the property on which it stood.
But last week, during a short but violent storm, this mighty white oak fell.

Estimates are that it was over 200 years old. So we enjoyed it for just a short period of its life. I can only imagine the people that walked under it during its life span.

I think the entire neighborhood is in mourning its loss.
