  • Longtime friendship leads to dessert collaboration

    Jarret Boyd always has a good column, but the one I really enjoyed was a couple of weeks ago when she wrote about visiting with her friends.

    It is so important to keep in touch with friends we have made over the years, but it isn’t always easy. Actually, Facebook has helped and I am so glad for that. It keeps us informed about what is going on with them, but the personal touch is truly the best.
