children. >> the memorial was funded by a group of teachers who no longer work at the school. it makes sense that the current administration had no idea the tree was planted as a memorial for randy. >> it was a tree planted in memory. we as a school district are going to make that right. >> a new plaque along with the bradford pair tree which is the same temperature that's cut down will be placed alongside a memorial that sits right inside the school. every dedication ceremony will take place in the next couple of years. >> 15 years can be viewed a lot of different ways. through nature, the dirt that goes on top of the plaque, it's buried over now. but in the life of this person was lost, 13 years you think oh in 15 years my tribute monument. >> if you lost someone that

>> so where are they? >> they could be in what is now the first four street basins or along the qantas canal. that would've been in the line of retreat. >> still a story that has residence for us when we think about her rocks. it reminds me of the line in the old western, when the legend becomes fact -- >> mark what you think about the story and the final resting place? >> it ties into everything about new york and new jersey, pennsylvania for that matter. the whole of washington's retreat came across the hudson river near alpine. how many of us drive each and every day down a road with a historic sign that says something related to those events which ultimately goes back to the skies for maryland. >> that's good. my name is steve duncan. i'm known throughout new york city as the bubble man. >> he breaks in over $700. >> how could you not love
