I am saddened by the news of Ms. Lukins' passing. Her Silver Palate cookbook from 1982 is my favorite among my many books. Have tried lots of the recipes successfully over the years. Her illustrations are wonderful!
My sincere sympathy to the family of Sheila, may you find peace and comfort.

For Shelia

WEEP NOT FOR ME


Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.

Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.

I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour of need, I will be there to comfort you. I will share your tears, your joys, your fears, your disappointments and your triumphs.

Do not weep for me, for I am cradled
in the arms of God. I walk with the angels, and hear the music beyond the stars.

Do not weep for me, for I am within you;
I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses the flowers. I am the calm that follows a raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats among the garden of God, and I am pure white snow that softly falls upon your hand.

Do not weep for me, for I shall never die, as long as you remember me...
with a smile and a sigh.

I knew Ms Lukins from a 'cherry trip' I had the pleasure to escort her on a few years ago when she visited Northern Michigan. She was gathering information on a new book that was to feature cherry recipes. She was a gracious soul. So very kind to someone she did not know. So full of lfie. I was surprised at her small stature, but she filled it with so much love of life. I will forever remember the day that I spent as Sheila Lukins chauffer with fond memories. I will miss her each Sunday when I read the Parade Magazine and every time I pass a cherry orchard. Betty Renner (Petoskey, Michigan)

Sheila, may you bring much sunshine and happiness to the next place on your journey; the same exuberance that you brought us here! Patti (Bakersfield, CA)
