My condolences as you cope with the loss of your dear loved one. Our prayer is that you find comfort and hope during this trying time.

Im so sorry to hear of the passing of a remarkable baking mentor and treasured cook book author. I honed my baking skills from Maidas baking books starting in the early 80s and was honored to meet her a couple times at cook book signings.
May her baking live on through her incredible books and recipes!

I am very sorry for your loss We express our warm love and deepest sympathy for you and your family.I am sure that you will find much comfort from the Bible at Re elation 21:3-5.

A good dessert is timeless, thank you for sharing your talent and recipes. This is not the end, you are in God's memory. May His spirit give comfort to the family, my condolences to you all. B.J.

I was lucky enough to spend time with Maida in her kitchen and come away with beautiful treats from her jars of baked goods. What a lovely person! Full of curiosity, life and joy!
Thank you for your beautifully written recipes. There never was a doubt your well written recipes wouldn't turn out picture perfect. Polka-dot cheesecake anyone?
Heaven just got more heavenly with Maida in the kitchen.

Sorry for your loss. Her cookbooks will live on as a testament to her creative genius!! OMG are her recipes amazing!!!

To the Heatter Family, many people thrive on the delicate intricacies of gastronomy, the study of food. God promises that one day we will have this kind of life, everlasting in the abundance of peace. (Psalms 38:4,11; NWT) He also promises to grant us the desires of our heart. So, to desire to have time again with your loved one, enjoying food and living in peace is a promise. Until such time I extend to you my deepest sympathies on your loss.

So sorry for the loss of a great person. Prayers to family she lived a wonderful Life and will never be forgotten
