Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Nora worked at the insurance company in the shopping center. She and Nana were good friends.
She would always make Nana these bars at Christmas. They were expensive to make and she was not wealthy, so it was a sacrifice for her to make these for Nana and PopPop. However, she knew they loved them.
Nana even offered to buy the ingredients for her one year just so she would make them!
