Personal Notes:
Ora Thompson was an RN who worked with mother at the hospital in the early years and later served as daddy's office nurse for many years. I've carried this recipe around since I was a teenager. I must have liked it at the time but have never made it. It's kind of like a chess pie on steroids with the raisins and pecans.
