I have no idea what you are going through. The pain of what you have lost and now the pain of his brother is suffering. I can only give you prayer and wish you and your little guy peace and love and you are definitely getting that wish from me!!

Babe, I totally understand. DH and I got married under an apple tree which was actually in the next yard, but half of it hung over our fence and we had permission of the owners to have all the apples we wanted. About 3 years after we were married the house was sold and I looked out the kitchen window so find that our beloved (and perfectly healthy) apple tree was gone. They cut it off at the level of our fence leaving a stupid 4 foot stump with no branches. I hope your tree will grow back, though it will take time.

Africhef, my thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Words escape me and I wish I had some magical soothing balm to heal you and your family. Love is the glue that binds. Keeps those you love and who you love close by.

Thank you guys. Yesterday I removed my son from the school system. We are going to home school him. You should see the relief on his face. He is actually smiling and hugging and kissing me, now that is a lot coming from a macho 13yr old.

Was your son being tormented? That is what it sounds like anyway. Boys don't tell anyone, just let it fester. Maybe that is where the anger was coming from??

oh, Laurie and Babe, doesn't that just make you sick? Where we lived in Cairo there were so few green areas but there was a beautiful tree that reached to the second floor of our apt. building........one afternoon several of us came home at the same time to discover to our horror that the tree was being hacked to pieces.....already half the tree was gone and the guy kept sawing away.......we screamed at him to stop and get out of the tree....luckily one of the wives spoke Arabic and she immediately called a nature activist who lived one building over and she really went after the resident of our apt. building who already had two parking spaces in the garage under the building but he decided to park his Mercedes under that tree and a few leaves fell on it......that's when he hired this guy to hack it down......when we found that out we were ready to tar and leaf him.....he had to pay a fine (a trifle amt to him) as there was an ordinance in place but the beautiful tree was butchered.....made us sick......
