My Aunt’s Funeral


After several months of fighting, my aunt (mom’s sister) lost her battle with pancreatic cancer.   I wanted to share two of my   favorite memories of my aunt.

During every holiday celebration she would make an angel food cake specifically for me (I think) because I liked her recipe and requested it every year.   Aside from the cakes she made, I don’t like angel food cake.

When I was in college, instead of sending me a birthday gift or a check, my aunt did something unique.   She sent me a huge box of homemade frosted cupcakes to share with my friends. To avoid potential damage from shipping the cupcakes, she stuffed the box with marshmallows.   There must have been 4 bags of marshmallows.   It was great.

I am going to be gone for a few days, but I have a few posts in the queue. In the meantime, if you haven’t had an annual medical checkup in a while, now is as good of a time as any to schedule one.
