Sophie always made us 4 course meals for lunch when we where working around the area. It didn't matter what she made it was always excellent and the deserts where even better. She always made sure you where stuffed. Always so kind and nice to me. I will miss her. Sorry for your loss.   Sincerely Scott busch.
