A Small Keepsake

See this?

It's a momento of a woman I never met, but wish I had. I was given this well-kept little box and its contents the other day by this woman's granddaughter, who sat next to me at work several desk configurations ago. Catherine would occasionally wear a variety of old, but lovely handknit sweaters and greet me by pulling it up so I could examine the backside (it was our joke). Yes, indeed, another treasure from Gran. Of Norwegian descent, of course, Florence Catherine Preus lived a healthy life, passing away a few weeks ago at 99.

Thank you, Catherine, for thinking of me. Now I have a treasure from your Gran, too.
