  2. years ago my Hawaiian born girlfriend used to make jello cheesecake for me and my sisters and children and gave me the recipe. It was a family favorite. With the passing of time ,we lost both , friend and recipe. Every now and then I would search the internet for a recipe close to Sally's. And finally about 4 years ago , I found your exact same recipe a few days before Christmas and surprised every one for our annual Christmas Eve Pot Luck. It was the star of the show and in the mean time our family has grown to 22. Yesterday , one of my grandsons came home from college for Christmas and the first thing he asked was : " Omi ( German for grandma ) you are going to make jello cheesecake ,right ? "
    So today I want to thank Cathy for resurrecting a holiday favorite for now 4 Generations of my family in remembrance of our friend Sally. Merry Christmas to all, MELE KALIKIMAKA !
