What is the best gift you have been given?
My family gave me a tissue box labeled The Box of Sweet Things filled with small slips of folded paper with sweet endings to the phrases: “I love you because…” “I like you because …” “I like how …”

What is your favorite childhood memory?
One of the many is related to something with my mother. At night just before bedtime, she would rub Jergens lotion on her hands. Then she would take my hands in hers and rub the extra lotion (which she always seemed to have) on each of my hands. I can remember that bottle and the way it smelled along with my hands wrapped in hers like it was yesterday. My kids know this story and now they ask me to do the same for them … legacy happens in many forms!
