Baba! I stumbled upon this while browsing the web. I miss you dearly - I remember our trips to Lawrence Welk and Hawaii. You always made me the best sandwiches, snuck me butterscotch candy, and reminded me never to worry. Your warmth lives on in your great grandson, Nicholas. I hope you are happy with your Nicksha up there!

I loved working with her at Kaiser for the 22 years I was there. She was always in a good mood. Every time I make her Cottage Cheese Pancakes I remember her fondly.
