One of the dearest friends, ever, was my friend, Kyllene. She snuck over to my front yard and planted some crocus bulbs to surprise me around 7-8 years ago. Last March 26, 2007, she passed away, after a 2 year battle with lung cancer. On the very day that she died, one lonely crocus bloomed and presented me with the first bloom of Spring and a wonderful memory of the generocity of my dearest friend. Her blooming flowers will now go on year after year, long after she's gone. What a token of her memory!
