Tree's Memorial Celebration Costs

On Thursday morning, our beloved Brian (Tree) Neal passed away. He was a well loved fixture in the Tuolomne community and was always there to support his community. From baseball team sponsorship to offering his shop to the CDF firefighters during the RIM fire...he was always there.

He was an incredibly talented artist who left a legacy of incredible artwork on many people. He loved what he did and it showed the passion he had for his work. It was never about money for Tree, it was about the art. When someone would come into the shop to get a tattoo to memorialize a lost loved one, he would do it for free - knowing how much pain they were in. He had a heart as big as his legend and it was pure gold.

His wife Lisa, was his other half in so many ways. He could not do what he did without her constant love and support. She propped him up when he was in pain, and was there for him when he needed it most. They were life partners and soul mates. 

We are asking people to donate to help Lisa with medical costs, funeral costs and just support while she deals with the aftermath of this devastating news.

All funds raised here will go directly to Lisa.

Love to you all!
