She as the oldest daughter of Lydia and Clarence, aka “Shorty”. Only one of two, her brother is still living in Arizona. Today would have been her 82nd birthday. One week from today marks the third anniversary of her passing. With her went much. But, thankfully, much she poured into me. The recipes, stories, music, genealogy, more than I can account now. But today, I lifted a demi-tasse of one of my favorites to her – a Monsooned Malabar. And I think, if she had liked coffee, she would have loved that shot. To you, Gamma.
Solo Deo Gloria,
