    Cynthia Brooks and Sandra Chandler make sure no one forgets the life and legacy of their mother, the late Bea Gaddy, who turned her personal misfortune into innumerable blessings for others. The Thanksgiving meal, along with food for additional dinners, has made an indelible mark in Baltimore history and moved people to dub her the Mother Teresa of Baltimore. Her generosity often exceeded 30-40,000 diners served, not counting money paid on delinquent rents and utility bills.

    Unwilling to let it fall to the wayside, especially since the need is greater

    than ever, volunteers come in large numbers to be sure that everyone eats.
