I grew up with different varieties of Lilacs in my grandfather's garden and loved their colors and scents. I discovered Lilacs were Arch's favorite flower. Who would have guessed? Coincidentally at the time of his Memorial Service they were in full bloom and a dear friend of mine brought countless bouquets from her garden without any awareness of the connection. I had Lilac trees in every garden we ever had and always cut a huge bouquet to place on his beside table for him to enjoy and HE DID!

His children planted a Lilac tree next to his grave. Have no idea how it is doing today. I guess I have forgotten to ask since it is in another Province and I never have the opportunity to visit. Will have to ask.
