Tombstone Tuesday - A Tree for Treacy

I found this unique tree tombstone in Calvary Cemetery in Pittsburgh a few weeks ago.  It is quite large, was actually bigger than the "real" tree I was standing against to take the picture.  While I have seen other tree tombstones this one caught my eye because of the family name - Treacy.  I assume it was pronounced "Treesy".  As my daughter said, "How cool, their tombstone is a pun". 

It was surrounded by three large flat stones with Father, Mother, and not sure how the third person was related.  For such a large stone I suspect maybe more are buried here but with no individual markers.
