KaiaJanuary 13th, 2000
Kaia was born to Onah and Steve and died after some six months following a couple of months of ???? At the time she had a sister Freya from Onah and Gavin and later a sister, Jalua was born to Onah and Steve.
The burial in the western field was attended by Steve's relatives and a few friends. many trees were planted on her grave but only in the last few years has a sweet chestnut survived. It may have been the shade that stunted and stopped the earlier trees from surviving.
This chestnut is a few years old at least, so you can see it has struggled, it had even before it was planted here, so it's quite a tough plant. Maybe now I have felled more surrounding trees it will get some girth.
