We loved sitting behind and/or beside Ms. Rachel and Mr. Gabe all those years during church!!! She was always so sweet and had kind words; always asking how we were doing. She was an true kind southern Belle!
At a church Social called the "Birthday Bash" Mr. Gabe sat at the table with me and he said Rachel this dessert is delicious.....come see it; she so sweetly said I made it Gabe!!!
