This young man a woman got married, and started a life together back in the hills of Appalachia. And as the years went pass, and they grew old together.The old man and woman had 3 kids. The kids were all grown up and moved away, living life of their own. Now there were a path that went pass the house, and up the hill. The old man a woman, had so much love for each other, it was beyond death it's self. She would call him dad, and he would call her mom. As old folks did back then. She said to her husband, " Dad, now if I pass away first, I want you to place me in the ground on the right side of that path, that goes pass the house, and up the hill." He said " ok mom, I will. So he replied,and said "Mom, if I pass before you, I want you to place me in the ground on the left side f the path." So she replied and said sure dad, I will."
Well the woman went before the old man passed away. So he did as to her wishes, and placed her in the ground on the right side of the path. The old man was left alone, and he started grieving his heart out. It wasn't long, before he died, and the kids came in and read the note he had wrote. And fulfilling his wishes, placing him beneath the ground, on the left side of the path. At the head on her grave grew a tale solf pine tree and it's limbs reached over across the path to the other side. At the head of his grave grew a tall strong oak tree, which it's limbs reaching across to the other side. The both touching it's other. They tell me on a warm summers night, as you walk up pass the house, and up the path. as the wind blows through these trees. You can hear the old man say "Mom, I love you." And the old woman reply saying " dad, I love you to." The power of Love.

My dad would tell this love story, to people that would come to our home, as when I was a small boy.
