It is with deep pain and anguish that I am writing this post. A dear friend Selma of Selma’s table passed away on the 4th of July. She was an inspiring food blogger,cook,photographer,food stylist, a wonderful mother and most of all an exceptional human being. Kind,caring,cheerful and effervescent Selma was a woman who touched many lives. She was an amazing co-blogger who with her helpful ways soon grew to be a dear friend. I am sure so many of you who knew her agree with me. With her gentle demeanor and encouraging words she built a strong rapport with every one around her. I can never forget that it was Selma who gave me technical help when I was unable to use recipe codes for publishing the print version of recipes on my blog. With lots of admiration and regards, I have to say that every single time I post my recipe, for the rest of my blogging life,Selma will be in front of my eyes and in my thoughts.The only thing I can do is pray that Almighty bless her soul.
Selma’s untimely demise is a huge loss to the blogging community as a whole.She did not let her pain show through her smile, never letting us know what she was going through. Even in her final post , she was so excited because her son, Jake was visiting her on his study break. She was like all mothers so happy to spend time with him, shopping with him and cooking for him. Selma mentioned that the young man adored the ‘Po boy toastie’ that she lovingly made for him and asked her if she could make it again for him. I don’t know if she could. My heart melted when I reread that post after she expired. May her family get the strength to overcome this loss.
I don’t think I need to say anything more about her.I think her tagline says it all.
If you want to know more about the dazzling lady,please do read the about page on her blog and take a virtual tour of her treasure trove, her timeless recipes made with so much love and care.
