The Chocolate Sop Story

So David and I first met in the summer between first and second grade. As we became closer friends David invited me to spend the night with his family. The following morning David's mom, Margaret prepared chocolate sop for our breakfast. Needless to say I found this to be great stuff. When I returned home I told my mom about Chocolate Sop and all she said was "No way you are getting candy for breakfast", and so it remained, the only time I had Chocolate Sop was when I was at David's house. Fast forward a few years later and I shared this experience with my wife. Cindy, being the great person she is, offered to try to make Chocolate Sop based on my recollection. It took several interations but I believe we are now pretty close to the original recipe. Today when my family gets together for breakfast Cindy always includes Chocolate Sop in our breakfast menu. I'm happy to say that thanks to the Burns family we have something very special to carry over into our family traditions and even today if you ask my mom, who is 94 years young, she still says "No way you are getting candy for breakfast"

The memory I would like to share about David. Seeing the sparkle in his eyes when his family was all together playing cards, singing, playing guitars. Even in his silence showed the care, love & pride he had for his wife, children & grandchildren. The heavens open up to receive a good man. David, the memories you made here on earth with all of us want be forgotten. RIP
