Mark, Kathy, Rocky, and Gary, I am very sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. I worked with her many years ago at Little's Drug Store. She was a very sweet lady and we had fun while we worked. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

I will always remember what she said when I asked her what was the name of the dessert she brought to a family gathering. I later found that it was online in recipes as "Mississippi Mud". She told me she called it "Better than Sex pudding". She was the most pleasant person to know. My heartfelt comfort and condolences are extended to all the family of Mae.
