Thinking of Anne as her birthday approaches and remembering how generously she celebrated others' special events. I especially remember a birthday cake she made for me many years ago: it was easily the most stunning cake I've ever seen. Knowing how I love gardening, she built, from icing, a lily growing tall out of a pot, various garden implements such as a trowel and watering can, and made a border of flowers circling the cake. It was so beautiful and such a loving gift of her time and skills. If only I could thank her again for all her loving kindnesses.
