Re: Madeline Sawyer Jennings, Greenville, Maine
During Madeline's memorial we passed out copies of her donuts recipes and had many stores about them. -- From the wonderful smell in her home to how excited we were when she mailed some to both her daughters' families in Connecticut. She made chocolate, vanilla, & mollasses. Yes, they were great!
Thanks for taken the time to say you remember,
