Aunt SiSi was not only a good cook, she was a wonderful host. Every time we were at her house (which was often) she would always put something on the table for us to eat, always. She was very warm-hearted and compassionate. Loved her pasta sauce. But what I looked forward the most is when the whole family would go to the lake on Sundays and she would always bring her chocolate ice box cake, yummy. Her compassion will be remembered.
