In spite of no treat, she was treated like a queen

   A Sunday paper has a column titled "Rants and Raves." This is a definite "rave" for what happened to me on Halloween.
   I had been ill; someone else did the shopping, and trick or treat candy was left out. No one had come the last two years. I was watching television when I heard a car stop. I looked out; it looked like a van with kids spilling out. I opened the door, when they said "trick or treat." I explained and said I was sorry. A taller girl in the back said, "That's all right."
   Then a smaller boy in front, with bright eyes and a lovely smile said he would share with me. He reached in and got out a Milky Way (my favorite).
   I managed to say thank you and bless you, but I wanted to put it in writing. I couldn't treat them, but I was treated like a queen. I will never forget it.
