Aunt Charlotte was a wonderful cook and a good story teller too. There are two recipes she gave me many years ago that I still treasure. Well, all the women in our family are good cooks, and each one had their specialty at our family dinners on the farm. Deepest sympathy to Uncle Harry, Janeal, Keith, Tracy, and all in their families. May good memories provide some comfort at this very sad time for them, and for all of us who knew and loved Aunt Charlotte.
