|Julie & Brue, my mom was a big fan of your mom, and I too have nothing but nice memories of her. As a child, your mom introduced me to her homemade pesto, from the basil in her garden. I thought she had created something magical back then, and to this day, I think of her every time I eat pesto pasta.
I am very sorry for your loss! Matt
|Julie and Bruce -- the DeWolfe family is so sorry for this enormous loss. We will all miss her so much. I agree with Matt that we will always remember her loving cooking and favorite recipes. For us, it is her Triple Chocolate Rum Cake. And the Sabuda books she loved and shared with my boys. -- Darcy, Stephanie and Bernie DeWolfe|
