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.
George H. Fix, Sr. - 1968 (age 48) - Marty and Helene (children #10 and #5) taken the same day (ages 5 and 13).

This is an ongoing project including photos, movies, and other extras. Check out recently added slideshows to the "Love Story" & "Home Movies" page links.
Catherine E. Berillon-Fix - 1968 (age 46) - These were entered for a mother of the year contest in a woman's magazine.
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).
All photographs on this page were taken by George H. Fix, Jr.
