  1. It was very sad to open the Daily Breeze and read about Mrs. Borm. She was a very classy lady who always welcomed me into her home. Even though almost twenty years have past since I last saw her, I will always have fond memories of her and the entire Borm family. (I still have her recipe for Mississippi Mud Cake!) My thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this difficult time. Sincerely, Cindie Risch Stevens
