Personal Notes:
I had this delicious dessert the first time I ever visited Joan. It was Randy's birthday though we were just dating then. He always did and still does request this dessert in place of a birthday cake. As sweet as this dessert was, the hospitality was even sweeter. From day one, I never felt like a stranger in her house. We became friends immediately. Her goodness, and compassion came through in all that she did. She had an unconditional way of loving and welcoming her guests. So much so, that they weren't guests long...they were family. I love her and miss her.
