Has someone at Together We Bake (a fellow participant, volunteer, instructor, etc.) had a particular influence on you?
Elice: Yes OMG, Stephanie and I were in touch with each other a year before I joined class. Stephanie has become a great listener and friend. She is amazing. Stephanie has been there for me mentally, emotionally. I can’t say enough good (positive) things about her. I feel as though Stephanie and I have endured this journey together. I’m not sure really how I would have handled some obstructions in my life without her. I’m blessed to have her in my life. This is not the end just the beginning.
