My mother-in-law loved sweets. Her favorite treat was ice cream, which she always had in the freezer, a trait her son inherited. But she wasn't picky. She loved cookies, brownies, sugary delights of all kinds.
A good friend of Alice's told us a tale from a few weeks before Alice died. They had gone for a walk through the assisted living facility and in the sitting room there was a plate with two brownies on it. Alice took a look at the plate and smiled up at her friend. "I'll eat one if you'll eat one," she smiled.
And so they did. Women after my own heart.
