I'm So Excited, sitting back here in Raleigh, North Carolina; I see my wish list for the kitchen...and indeed these things will help; understand that these women who work in the kitchen would never ask, as they are so polite, but their need is great and we should all take time out to help....what a wonderful, wonderful week..these are hard working people at Holy Cross...God Bless and thinking of you and the children....J.Hyde
