This has been a bit of a sad week for Levain Bakery.  On Tuesday, March 17th 2009, appropriately Saint Patrick’s Day, we lost one of our biggest advocates, a mother, a dear friend and an amazing woman. 


Esther McDonald is well known by many of our long time customers.  Es spent many hours at the bakery working with everyone and chatting with everyone.  Without Es’s support and belief in us the bakery would never have come to be.  When other people looked at Connie and Pam and thought they were out of their minds to be opening “a bakery!” Es never hesitated to help in anyway possible. 


We have great memories at the bakery of Saint Patrick’s day with Es dancing around to Irish folk music, Thanksgiving evening with a glass of “Chablis” and some turkey after a busy day, packing up gift packages during the holidays and the other many other days she spent with us. 


We are still laughing about Es asking “do we make cappuccinos?” her way of getting someone else to make them for her!  As well as her “do we have more chips?” meaning she had run out of cookies!


Essie, we love and adore you, thank you so much for everything and we know that you are in heaven watching over us.
