Carrot Cake and Memories

I had a lovely surprise while at the town office today.  One of the folks from town brought in a piece of carrot cake for me and my assistant. 

He said the carrot cake was his mom's recipe and it was her favorite.  Each year since her passing he makes it on her birthday and gives a piece to the people who have made a difference in his and his mother's life.  We were floored and truly honored.  What a beautiful gesture this lovely man makes in memory of his mom.  I think it's a tribute I would love to make to a few people in my own life that have passed. Oh, and the carrot cake?  Melt in your mouth yummy!
