We lived right next door. I remember in 5th grade bringing home a cherry tree. Remember all the ones 5th graders received in school. Through the many years, storms etc., that tree left some large branches. Mr. Lehecka made a small round token box from one of the branches that had fallen. The precision of his woodworking, the final polished box which I still have, is cherished as a childhood memory. After Mom sold the house on Rosewood, I wasn't able to visit the tree anymore. But the memory is still clear after bringing that tree home 55 years ago as part still lives in my curio cabinet.
