Skywatching for Mandy

The Tree of Remembrance is a sculpture in Piccadilly Gardens.

It was commissioned by Manchester City Council in memory of the City's Civilian War Dead 1940-1945, and created by Wolfgang Buttress & Fiona Heron in May 2005.

Looking up, as a bird flys by, I remember an old friend Mandy Smith who has recently gone into a hospice. She was a regular reviewer for New Hope International Review.
