my friend/old coworker commited suicide. his anniversery is coming up next month.  (7 years).  he hung himself in a tree at his house. since then his wife, and kids and his older sister all live in that house.  well his sister wants to take it down and his wife does it. his wife asked for my input, along with a few of his old coworkers and we are at a loss for words, we really dont know what to say.  we dont want to say its just a tree bc she leaves flowers on it every year and spread his ashes down over by the tree as well. but then again it is just a tree.  i wish she didnt get us involved but she is involving everyone so she can get to her sil and say "see, even so and so agrees with me".

His wife is really the only opinion that matters at all.  I wouldn't say anything one way or another.  This was his house, therefore it is his wife's house.  She lost her husband.  The decision has to feel right to her and no one else.

that's tough and a little weird they're asking his old co-workers what they should do at their own house.

it's just a tree...but i think i'd be inclined to keep it up if i were his wife.

Is it in the way of anything? Could it cause possible harm to the house, cars? Is the house sil's or the wife's?
