Mrs.Navan (aka. "Big Cake Box" to me) was an amazing woman. Kind, generous, full of life and laughter, she was an inspiration to everyone who knew her. My days of working together at the Little Cake Box were always so enjoyable because of her. I think of her every Christmas when I put the Christmas Angel that she gave me on the tree and re-read the poem she wrote that accompanied it. My sympathies to you Karen and Gary.

I will always have wonderful memories of "Miss Evelyn" as she was known to my children. I grew up at The Little Cake Box. My family would later visit her in Ogunquit. She would always have special treats or gifts for my children and wonderful stories and lots of laughs. R.I.P "Miss Evelyn". Kathy (Retallick) Jellen
