    Please accept my sympathies on the passing of Mrs. Griger. You do not know me, but I wanted to share a story that you might appreciate. For some time I have had a recipe that I copied from the Italian Community Center Cookbook. It was for Raspberry Cream Cheese Coffeecake from Babe Griger. It is a delicious recipe. I have had the recipe card on my kitchen counter for a couple of weeks with the intent of making it. We had company coming this morning and today was the day I planned on making it. When I noticed Mrs. Griger’s name in the paper today, I knew that I had to make it. Everyone enjoyed it, of course. I hope you are not displeased that I have contacted you in this way. Again, my condolences.
