Stories: Who We Have Lost
The Christmas Tree
Who did you lose to Covid 19? Michael Mantell
Picking out our Christmas tree was always stressful. Mike would pick out a 10-foot tree for a house with 8-foot ceilings. Then we had to wait three days for the branches to fall before the lights could go on. Well, with 5 daughters there was very little patience for this. But it was actually a joyful time because there was a lot of laughs, singing Mariah Carey Christmas songs and teasing my husband because we had to tie up the tree so it wouldn’t fall down.
Such happy memories that we will never be able to duplicate. Just not the same getting the Christmas tree anymore ...
