Beth, I just saw this. The tears are flowing down my face. Thank you for sharing that. I thought I had hold of my grief but I think not and I am glad, because if I let go of my grief I am afraid I will let go of her.

I feel I need to share something here and now. When my Dad was so ill and I was struggling to deal with my own health, his needs and his dementia which was really taking it's toll on me, Ma told me to pay no never mind but to focus on what I knew was in his heart. She would always check in and see how things were going.

When he passed away she told me "he is now looking down on you honey and his mind is clear and he is no longer in pain. He knows the love you had for him and still carry in your heart."

Ma is looking down on everyone that she has touched in this world She knows the love we had for her and still carry in our hearts.

I'm so sorry I didn't see this sooner. She was such a dear person! She certainly will be missed!

I am again overwhelmed. Thank you for sharing stories of how she helped you through tough times. My mother was a very thoughtful person. Beth, that gift from my mom to you has now become a gift to me...all because you had the courage to open it and post it here. Thank you! Happy Holidays to you all. You are in my thoughts, and will be for a long time to come.

Ok; Kade's Kids; I honor my parents memory by doing two things; 1rst, those parts of them that I loved most, I have consiously adopted into my own personality; 2nd, I occasionally cook something that they made, that I especially enjoyed, and since I especially enjoyed a great many of the dishes they made, it gives me lots to work with. It keeps their memory alive and fresh for me.

In that vein, take that plunge and learn to cook like your mother, and grandmother for you grandkids. It's not as hard as it is daunting. But we are here to help you. We can offer you suggestions, give you blow-by-blow instructions for virtually any technique you could ever want to use, and help you recreate the memorable foods Kadesna made for you.

Whenever I make New England Boiled Dinner, or American Goulash, I do it the same way my Dad did. From my Mom, I learned chili, baked bread, and date-filled cookies. From my Stepdad, It's fried eggs. From my Grandparents, it's poached eggs and country-fried steak.

I have more creations of my own than I could list. And so I have my own identity in the world of cooking that my own children can pass on. But in that world, my parents and grandparents will always figure in, because I handed that down to them too.

She did it because she loved giving you her best. You can adopt, and pass on that tradition, and by so doing, do more than honor your mother, you can make her a part of you, and your family, forever. So go ahead and jump into the pool. We're you life preservers if you need them.

Seeeeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

I have not had the feeling that this gift was ever solely for me. I think she meant it for all of us who ever loved her.
