“He will love this” she gushed as she finished laying the table. She had made all his favourite dishes today, after all it was his birthday. As a finishing touch she hid his gift under the napkin silently praying, ‘Hope he likes it.’ She turned to see the time when her glance fell on the nearby mantle piece. His photo adorned the mantle with fresh flowers lying besides. He loved fresh flowers and she never forgot to bring them every day. They always made her feel his presence around her but today they reminded her of his demise……two years ago.
