Let's see, I get home and find a fat envelope in the mail from Ann Sandlin. She's copied me (and many others, I'm sure) on the communication between herself, Candace Oakley, the Historic Rose Hill Cemetary Foundation and the Community Foundation of Central Georgia.

It seems that there's been a lot of appreciation regarding Ann's cookbook sales and the money raised to preserve Rose Hill Cemetary.

Ann has been so graceful that she's spread the thanks and recognition to ALL of the supporters (buyers, I suppose) of the cookbook. Indeed the proclamation reads,

The Community Foundation of Central Georgia gratefully acknowledges a gift to the Historic Rose Hill Cemetary Foundation Fund

in memory of Berry Oakley and Duane Allman

by (get this): Ms. Ann Sandlin & ABB Cookbook Supporters.


I'm overwhelmed on several levels, but mainly that Ann is so incredibly modest to share this proud and important moment with all of us. We should all be proud of Ann and her assistants for this very great gesture. Thanks for including us Ann, but the "attagirl" should go to you and the folks who assisted you. Thanks again!

Why Ann, you've been proclamated!

But since it was for an extremely worthy cause I hope it didn't hurt and only tickled a small bit....

I got my letter at work today too. Thanks for a great job Ann and including us on the responses you received. First class job...........Thanks to all that made it happen.

Came home from work and my girlfriend was reading up on a couple of recipes. I am not sure the dish but she was interested in the recipe dedicated to Tinsley Ellis....................


Great Job to all.

Thank you everyone for the kind words. There was absolutely no way I could NOT include each of you in the thanks.....what was it someone once said....I couldn't be me without you! Had I not had the support of so many who contributed recipes, checked the recipes (yes RR you know who I'm talking about) encouraged us and made us believe it would really happen and all of the people who then bought the book. It was only right that any thanks and credit should go to you all! (Right here please insert big round of applause for everyone, a huge pat on the back to each of you and now take a bow!)

Ann without one of us participating the cookbook would have been fine, without you there would have been no cookbook....

Maybe, maybe not....but I know for certain there would be a lot of hyphens in it had you not done your part!

A quick note, I apologize for the quality of the copies.....I didn't realize they had lines in them, were a little light in places and sort of off kilter until I returned home from Office Depot. Lesson learned....don't make copies right after Christmas and before New Year's Eve!!!

Thanks Ann, with all the negative stuff that gets around about Rose hill, it's really nice to hear a positive. Your concept truly flourished.
