A lot of people have passed away and left us too early while some get to live a full and longer life. Either way we are always saddened when we loose them and always wish they’d stayed a little longer…
We remember them when we look up at the stars or stare at a sunset, when we hear a song, or on a special day. We remember them when we smell or taste something familiar and delicious.

Vó Escorcio passed away at the age of 90 this past weekend. There are certain things that have reminded me of her. Someone that I grew up calling vó or vóvó Escorcio, she was my ‘adopted’ grandmother. We were in the same church and choir since I was a teen, we sang the same voice! We both loved ‘Turn your eyes upon Jesus’ sang by her son of course no one else…it was one of our favorites.
She had lunch with us many many Sabbaths. And while remembering her this week I have found some gifts in my house that she gave me and they have made me smile. Simple things that she made or crocheted.
|4 eggs, 2 table spoons of margarine, 1 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup of self raising flour,
3/4 cup of coconut, 500ml of milk, 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence.
Whisk everything together and pour in tart dish.
Bake at 170 for + – 45 minutes. Bom Apetite!
Vó, so many people miss her already, she will never be forgotten, I know she is resting in the Lord waiting for him to wake her some day. R.I.P. dear vó.
