We are both so sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. We use to talk with her at the nursing home when we would visit Bev's mom (they ate dinner at the same table). She was so sweet and friendly!

We are so sorry for your loss. Liz and I started work the same day at Kraft's. She was such a sweet, fun lady. And a great cake baker. Hers were the best. She baked many cakes for my family's celebrations. Heaven is enjoying her sweetness now. You are all in my prayers.
