I walked that same path many times and today I walked it again. I just can't help but wonder why he could'nt of avoid getting hit by this tree? A tree that size doesn't just come crashing down, does it? I stood there puzzled thinking about it, anytime I've seen a tree that large fall it seemed to take it's good old time doing so. It's just so sad, there's no good way to "go" but after weaving though all that life throws at us and making it to 64, then being hit by a falling tree while walking in the park just seems so very sad. RIP
