What’s Up Sweet Paul?
This issue is dedicated to my wonderful mom who passed away in early August. She had
been struggling with cancer for over a year, and finally let go one morning. She was an
amazing person–everyone who met her loved her. Creative, fun, amazing taste, and in my
eyes the most beautiful mom ever. I have so many great memories of her that will live on
inside me. One of her many wonderful features was that she was always there whenever I
needed her, just like a mom should be. She was always eager to give advice on anything from
food to more serious stuff, or send me money when I was broke.
I think one of my fondest memories is when one late fall morning, she woke me up early by
telling me that it had snowed outside. She pulled back the curtains and boy, had it snowed.
We got dressed and ran outside and played in the snow. After, we came back in and had hot
cocoa with whipped cream. I can still remember this so clearly, even though it’s now about
40 years ago.
Dear Mom, this issue is all dedicated to you, I know you are reading it where you are.
Enjoy, and I love you!
