A fabulous, brilliant pink, cyclamen and white bouquet arrived yesterday from #1 son, Keith. He doesn't usually remember such days, so this was unexpected and thus an extra special surprise.
It brought back the memory with joy of the red glass lamp Mother's Day gift, the then 10 year old bought with money he'd saved from his allowance. He and his friend, Fran Maren, after their Ju-jitsu class at the Morristown Y, shopped on the square for "something special". I can still picture them in their white cotton outfits, so aglow with their independence, generosity and their shopping adventure. Now, the special lamp is in his Seabrook home.
