A few days after the death of George 'Poppy' Gollihare, a cardinal flew to the family's residence, perching on tree to tree. "It was all we needed to realize his presence among us," says JoAnn Gollihare, top, George's widow. Since 2010, the Gollihare family has decorated this nearly 10-foot tree, above, located along the northbound General Crook Trail exit at I-17, in memory of the family's patriarch who passed away on Christmas Eve in 2009.
