    I’m so sorry to hear this news. Waltrina was a favorite of mine and I could always count on her to respond to an email. I always found her reviews to be spot on for my tastes.

    RIP sweet lady.

    The funny thing is…the irony…is that the first time I ever really followed her recipe to the last inch was her last (literally) column about Pecan Pie…(someting I would want on my casket instead of flowers.) Waltrina gave me the missing links to perfect pies! A slice will be eatten in her honor. And a glass raised high to a rare pro whose talents exceeded her ego instead of vice versa. Merry Christmas.
