My Grandmother passed away when I was 11, but I remember her like she is still with us. Little things I see, smell, or taste remind me of her and the time we spent together. I bought a bag of Maple Nut Goodies today, they were her favorite candy. They are so good, I can't stop eating them. Pretty soon the Lilacs will be in bloom, she had many in her yard. They are so fragile, smell so wonderful and are so fleeting that you have to pay real close attention to them, or you'll miss them until next spring. I remember that I was about 7 years old and decided to climb the Lilac bush in her alley. I broke the branch and came crashing down.
