Wait…something is missing. There is an empty stool this Christmas

If I were Dickens, I would have had the Ghost of Christmas Future foreshadow the empty stool by the fire when I wrote Do This in Remembrance of Me last year, but alas, Dickens I am not.

    So thankful that you coordinated the opportunity for me to make donuts with my Mimi right before my wedding day this past year. It is a memory I will cherish forever. My son will know his great-grandmother and just how amazing of a person she was. I love you, Mimi!
