Today is Mom's birthday. To remember Dad, I made her a molasses crumb cake aka shoofly pie. I made it using Dad's method and it turned out great. Mom is really thrilled and will remember Dad with each mouthful. I was able to remember him as I made it. Yum.
P. S. Hoffman's Playland will live on since the rides have been purchased by a local company which will set them up in Albany. Now generations of kids and their parents will be able to enjoy what I did with my special Dad.
