Gary stated “my mother loved my seafood gumbo and whipping pound cake and I would prepare these dishes for her every Mother’s Day. This became our tradition. My mother passed away in April 2014 but I still prepare her favorite dishes every Mother’s Day to celebrate her life and all the wonderful memories we share. Therfore, it is my pleasure to share this tradition with each of you this year for Mother’s Day 2021.”
