    Sorry for your loss. A sad season in which to lose someone.

    As to a tree, there are a lot of questions.

    Where will it grow? In a park? In a small garden? In a pot?
    What did your loved one like? Any special memories?
    Do you want it to be at its best at this time of year?

    My sympathies. 
    An amelanchier has spring blossom and beautiful autumn colour and has fruit in the summer which the blackbirds love.  We planted one when we lost my mother in the spring.

    Sorry for your loss. 

    I grow Prunus x subhirtella 'Autumnalis Rosea'. It flowers sporadically throughout winter and then has a bigger flush in spring. It has good autumn tints, too, though there are other trees that have better autumn colour. I like this tree because the smattering of flowers throughout winter brings joy at the darkest time of year. 

    Perhaps, you could plant some lovely bulbs beneath the tree to add to the display.
