    One of the things that really connected us was food she cooked for me and I cooked for her.

    Mother's been legally blind for the past 8 years or so and she really struggled with her cooking, but she cooked right up until the last couple of weeks before her death. And, she cooked salmon croquettes up until around 6 months ago.

    When I spent time with her we would often watch the food channel on TV. She couldn't see the TV very well, but I think she still enjoyed sharing that with me.

    For quite a long time now, I've cooked for mother two or three times a week and she just loved my cooking more than anything. Right after she passed away, I was in the kitchen and it struck me that my "meals on wheels" endeavors were a thing of the past and that really hurt more than I can say.

    I know that when I'm in the kitchen cooking nice, I'll think of her--especially when I'm doing my cream soups--Cream of Asparagus was her favorite.

    Honesty pays, but it doesn't seem to pay enough to suit some people. Kin Hubbard
