In other blog posts I’ve described how my family went about writing remembrances and obituaries, and I’ve seen a number of wonderful media presentations sharing pictures, video, and spoken tributes. One good friend hosted a hymn-sing remembrance, an evening of friends singing and sharing memories. Another went through pictures and various letters and designed a presentation to play on digital picture frame — and it was easy to share with other family members.
Recently my friend Sara shared a remembrance project, a tribute to four mothers who were good friends in their retirement community and church. After two of the women died their adult children compiled a cookbook of dessert recipes, memories, and tributes to honor the friendships. Fondly referred to as the “Fearsome Foursome” in their local Presbyterian church in North Carolina, the mothers were well-known and respected for their faith, courage, love, and spirit.
This proceeds from this delightful remembrance, The Fearsome Foursome Cookbook: Desserts from Four Sweet Cookies, benefit the church where the women were members.
