Aunt Duffy made one mean Red Velvet Cake. :)
Will always think of my Aunt Duffy every Thanksgiving when we have “Duffy’s Salad”. Her famous pineapple whipped cream delight. I loved her laugh. She was the last of that Wagler generation. They were sure special.
Always loved stopping at Aunt Delphy's house. Rest in Peace
