Those Who Have Died
by Suicide






1 c. creamy or chunky peanut butter
1 c. sugar
1 c. firmly packed brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla extract

2 1/2 c. cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 c. butter or margarine

Preheat oven to 375. In a mixing bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, beat together the butter and the peanut butter until well blended and smooth. Beat in both sugars until well blended. Beat in the eggs and the vanilla. Add the flour mixture and beat until well blended. Shape the dough into 1 inch balls and, as you roll them, place them on an ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Flatten each ball with a fork, making a crosshatch pattern on the dough. Bake for about 12 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove with spatula and cool thoroughly on a wire rack. As good as the cookies are warm, they are even better (and crispier) when cooled and they continue to improve for a few days. Store them in a tin.

Memories build a special bridge when loved ones have to part to help us feel we're with them still and sooth a grieving heart. Our memories span the years we shared, preserving ties that bind. They build a special bridge of love and bring us peace of mind.

There is a grief that breaks the heart and wounds the soul, that last and lasts and can shatter in a minute but will inspire for a lifetime.
