I was so sad to hear about the passing of Abe Nevarro. I had the pleasure of getting to know him this past year. He was such a warm and kind person and was the type of person that made you feel like you had known him forever. I had the opportunity to visit his store when it was still called Trease Cannabis Store. It has since changed to Docks. My heartfelt thoughts go to his family and children. He willed be missed by so many.
I asked Abbey who works at our local Foodland to make this cake. I missed a friends birthday and thought this would make up for it. Abbey is such a talented baker. Isn’t this an awesome cake? I can’t eat sweets but she knew my Mom can and brought over a big slice for her. She said it was delicious and not overly sweet. You know how some icings can be too sweet? This one was perfection! Thanks Abbey!
Allen Stanley played for many NHL teams including the Toronto Maple Leafs (1958-1968). Four time Stanley Cup winner, including the last cup The Leafs won. After retirement from hockey, Allan and his wife Barbara owned the Bee Hive Hockey School Complex near Bobcaygeon.
I had also brought a metal Shirriff coin with his picture on it. In the 1950s, Shirriff Salada gave away coins with of NHL players on them in their food packages. He was shocked to see it and wondered where I had got it. I told him I bought it in an antique store. He just burst out laughing and said something along the lines of how that dated him. We got a good laugh out of that. Maybe I shouldn’t have said “antique store”
