What a wonderful idea! If we were going to create a memory box for Miss Maudie, we'd want to include the things that reminded us the most of her. That would mean something related to her great cakes (a plate? a fork?), something related to her beloved yard (dead weeds?), something to remind us of her wonderful stories, especially about the Bible, and something to remind us of her house that burned down (a pinch of ashes, most likely). If we wanted to make it more inclusive, we might include something related to the stories she shared about Atticus (Ol' One Shot!).
