Yes, my friend.. scents, scenes and rooms...certain places... they always are fresh in the memory...can have us relive the memory, get lost in the memory....I thank you so much for reading.. ~Laura

oh, sweetie. This is sad. Yes, one's presence does linger long after they are gone...To lose a child must be a terrible thing. Congrats on winning in Justin's contest. You wrote a fabulous piece. :) Hugs
