A Fragrant Memory

Yesterday on my 78th birthday my son Michael and his wife Michelle sent me a dozen lovely American Beauty roses and by late afternoon my small apartment was filled with their fragrance. It reminded me of a long ago time when I received my first dozens roses.

There was a knock at the door and a man’s loud voice called out, “I have a delivery for Mary Jane Elster.”

When I opened the door the man handed me a florist box with a red satin bow.

I quickly removed the bow, took off the lid, and to my delight, found a dozen American Beauty roses with a note inside.

The handwritten note simply said, “Happy 16th birthday, Champ.” Love, George

I still have the note, the red satin bow and best of all, the memory.
