Last October, another dogwood was planted near the town's youth football field - again, in memory of Josh. You can read about it here.
I am told that it is unusual for newly planted trees to bloom in the first year. And yet, Josh's trees have done so. My grieving heart takes comfort in this small occurrence. Even though it has been over a year, it is still so very, very hard.
I will end this short post with a slideshow of pictures taken when he was 10 years old.
