Weeping Willow

Weeping Willow is the symbol for the Fix Family Website. The idea for this website came from reading dad's (George Fix 1920-1994) journals 1955-1994
(40 years), going through his pictures, slides, and movies. As the keeper of these treasures from a wonderful man and father, I wanted to find a way to put them all together for the rest of his family and friends to be able to view from anywhere since we are all so spread out across so many miles (Betty, child #8).

Dad's Favorite Tree

Weeping Willow was dad's favorite tree and he planted them at our first three homes. It has long been known that the Weeping Willow Tree is known for its tearful symbolism, ill omen - the sad droopy look of the branches hanging down, "crying" of the tree when it rains (rain drops travel from the branches to the ends of the leaves and fall to the ground). This family has had its share of sadness so it is an appropriate symbol, I think.

Catherine E. Berillon-Fix - 1968 (age 46) - These were entered for a mother of the year contest in a woman's magagine.
She may not have won that contest but she was the winner in our minds and hearts - Jack and Marty (children #11 and #10) that same year (ages 3 and 5).
