Lilock, beloved pet cat of the Nicklas family, has died peacefully in her sleep. For 21 years she brought joy and warmth to a loving household and will be remembered often, especially in springtime. It was in the spring when Leif Nicklas, then 7 years old, was given a tiny black kitten. He happened to be standing under a fragrant lilac tree when his mother asked him what he wanted to name her. He took a deep breath, inhaling the intoxicating scent of lilacs and said, “I think we should name her Lilock”. She was laid to rest in the backyard, near her favorite flowering bush and will be remembered often by Leif, his brother Mikael, sister Lena, and parents Eva and Mark.
