One of the many interesting things about my Aunt Helen is that while she was a diabetic on a strict sugar-free diet, she was a fabulous baker. Her cookies, cakes, and quick breads were a staple in her kitchen, there for the pleasure of the many townspeople who paused in their day to sit at the table and chew the fat (and some goodies) with her. My Uncle Ferd did not fare so badly, either, with a plate of raisin cookies or cream puffs close at hand, always.
In March of this year, I unexpectedly lost a close friend. The details of her passing are irrelevant. All the world needs to know is that she was a practical jokester who loved art, children, and America’s Next Top Model.
