Prayers sent for your loss. I remember Danna cooking some of the best fried chicken I have ever eaten (it was all about the grease). Never mind her making of noodles, I follow her recipe and know it by heart. She opened her home to all that needed a place to stay and was honestly willing to give anything to anyone. I still make her chili with dumplings and am thankful for her smile. Love sent to all that was touched by her giving heart. I am so very sorry to hear of her death. Blessings and love sent.
