Personal Notes:
Kim is the wife of Charles Hollenshead and the daughter-in-law of Charles Phillip and Melanie (Crook) Hollenshead. My favorite chocolate pie that my grandmother, Evelyn Foster, used to make! Yum, yum! The pie is out of a very old Betty Crocker cookbook with changes in chocolate from squares to cocoa.
