This story about love and legacies across generations begins as a little girl and her grandmother spend special times together filled with "big warm smiles, and warm snuggly hugs." Many visits end with the grandmother's familiar words, "I want to give you something to remember me by." Then she gives her granddaughter a small keepsake.
As the years pass, grandmother and granddaughter share many gifts as the keepsakes fill a cedar chest with memories. It becomes clear that one gift is most precious of all – the gift of love.
