John Powel, a Professor at Loyola University in Chicago writes about a student in his Theology of Faith class named Tommy:

Mother's Day is just around the corner and I have been digging through Mom's old 1915 recipe book that she left me when she passed away. It was 15 years ago last month, just a few days after her 82nd birthday. In the book I found a handwritten recipe for the cookies that she used to bake.
