Mother’s Chocolate Cake..Heavenly

Mother’s Day is every day to me. She was a registered nurse and a wonderful cook. Friends and family enjoyed her company. A smile and laughter were always with her as well as her funny jokes. Everyone enjoyed them too, almost as much as her cooking. Time passes, memories stay with us.
