I heard all about those famous bologna sandwiches and tried for myself when visiting with Barbara Slaven. Toots didn't know me but gave me such a warm welcome and was so generous with her time. We spent time in her store just so Barb could catch up on all the news. I also heard stories of how she and her husband gave credit and food to those in need. She will be sorely missed, I'm sure.
