One More Thing...

Out of respect for my Dad's wishes, there won't be a service.  He just wouldn't have enjoyed being the center of attention like that, we think.  We will honor him, though, every time we sit down to the table with our family and give thanks for our blessings...and every time we make gumbo, or fish, or shrimp, or a cake from scratch or one of the many things he cooked for us in sickness and health.   In our family, food is love (insert joke here...we're sad, but we're still warped, right?)...we even titled our last cookbook "It's Food That Makes Us Family."    

 Thank you so much to all of you who have called, e-mailed, texted and even facebooked, if that's a verb, your sympathies and support.  Please don't be offended if you haven't received a reply, but I know you understand.  We are truly blessed with great families (we have lots of them) and friends (we've got lots of them, too)...thank you all for loving Grandpa and for your prayers for Mom and the grandkids.  If there was anything at all we needed I promise I'd tell you, but right now we've got everything we need.  Time should take care of the rest.  :)  

Thank you all--we love you BIG!
