Just to say.

My friend Kristin lost her son not quite three years ago and started a foundation in his honor.  Our hometown paper did a beautiful story on her that you can read here. 

And then go the website for the Jedediah Thomas Smith Foundation and pre-order the forthcoming foundation cookbook.  It will make fantastic holiday gifts for the cooks in your life, it helps a good cause  AND includes a recipe from me – my Aunt Loretta’s Mrs. Van Popple Cheesecake.  All proceeds go to the foundation, which gives assistance to families battling childhood cancer.

I still carry a picture of Jed in my wallet.  It reminds me that each day is a gift, to not take anything for granted.  And to remember a very special little boy who’s short life has left a long lasting legacy.
