There was never a meeting, no matter how brief, that there was not a beautiful smile and a genuine hug. I treasure the recipes shared, always giving credit to Mrs. Shan when I am complimented. A beautiful soul entered heaven as a servant of God from this earth. Love and prayers to the daughters, grandchildren and relatives. Mawmaw was a treasure to everyone of you. Know she was a precious teacher, friend and glorious leader. She spent the last week of her life doing and enjoying what she wanted. Thoughts and Prayers are with you.
