Cupcakes will never be enough...but THANK YOU

In September, my father was forced into early retirement due to a below-the-knee amputation on his right leg.

For as long as I can remember, my father has battled multiple health problems and always fought through them to provide for his family.

Now, it is time for his to focus on himself and getting healthy so he and my mother can enjoy their retirement together.

My father's last employer was a HUGE part of making this sudden and difficult transition for my parents, as easy as possible. They were compassionate, understanding and helpful in allowing my father to recover without worrying about all the small details surrounding a sudden disability and retirement.

To say THANKS, I wanted to bake them something sweet and delicious.

Two of my most popular cupcakes are the Vanilla Caramel and the Oreo Cookies n' Cream so I made them both.

I wanted to try these out too:

I went with my father last month to pick up his things and I was overwhelmed by the amount of co-workers happy to see my father and see him healthy. One after another came out of their offices to give their best wishes to my father. He was truly loved and appreciated and I know that he will be missed.

So, THANK YOU to everyone at Herrick Steel in Stockton, Ca.

THANK YOU for providing my father with his best job, best bosses, best co-workers and for taking such good care of him Monday through Friday for so many years.
