I Know A Guy (Gal) . . . who gave Easter baskets

I know a guy, actually a very old lady in the church I grew up in. She gave us Easter baskets. We weren't her kids, her grandkids, or in any way related to her. Yet, every Easter she would show up with baskets loaded with chocolate, candy, and special toys for me and my sister. She came by the house on birthdays and brought us cards. Lots of people thought she was crazy, touched, or a few steps beyond eccentric, but I think she just found great joy in life and in giving. If that makes you crazy, then be crazy. I don't remember her doing anything else in our church, anything grand or significant in the eyes of the world. I do, however, remember her smile, and her generosity to me and my sister.
